One of my favorite things about our house in the spring and summer is all the butterflies!  They love our honeysuckle; it's so fun to watch them float around our yard all day.  Here's the boys on one of their chases.

But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:
And now from having ridden out desire
They lie closed over in the wind and cling
Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.

Every year we do a butterfly kit! I bet your boys would like it :)

You order caterpillars and watch them turn into butterflies and then release them. My kids love it!

We also do the lady bugs. I had no idea they had three stages like a butterfly.
