Harry the Caterpillar

 This is Harry. We found him outside on our playground.

The toddlers were very curious about him. They wanted to touch him, talk to him, and try to hold him.  We discussed what he is, what he eats, and other fun details about Harry. 

We decided that it would be best for Harry if we let him go back into one of the gardens in our playground.  After I put him into the taller grass the toddlers watched him crawl around before saying bye to him.
