The Chrysalis Project

Each individual project bag contains: wet clay, instruction booklet


Project Description:

Find a special rock to draw a butterfly on. Enclose your butterfly within a clay chrysalis. Place your chrysalis outdoors where you can easily check on it. Watch as the weather erodes your chrysalis until your butterfly emerges!
