Every year my mother makes the kids these butterfly boxes. You collect the Monarch butterfly in caterpillar form, stick them in a modified shoebox with a door and clear plastic lid and feed them plenty of milkweed (I know where that stuff grows all over the city now!!). After a time, they get fat, climb up to the top and cocoon. A predetermined amount of time later, they pop out, all butter-fly-like and we let them go and they fly to Mexico!
