My good friend Judi Sunshine (Yep-per that's her really name) is an endless source of great ideas. At a recent butterfly rearing convention she showed me her latest idea and I immediately asked if I could post it here for you. First there is a complete Painted lady rearing set up. I have tested this in my "After School Programs" and the kids loved it. Everything was just their size, but don't let that limit you. I think any adult who always liked butterflies but never had the time in the busy schedule would love it as a birthday, get well, or retirement gift. I warn you if it is going to be a retirement gift you may just may change the rest of that person's life. If it is for someone younger you will be opening a very enjoyable door to science and the amazing world nature for them. What I and my After School Kids enjoyed the most was that mini microscope that is included. What a window into a whole other world that is hiding in plain sight. It has two built in lights and it can be adapted to iPhone 4 for some great videos. Judi showed me one of a caterpillar eating it way out of its own egg!!!!!! I have one student in my class that needs extra help with most tasks but that student fell in love with the mini-scope and became lost in and with it for most of the period.
