We now have twenty of these little guys temporarily living at our house.
My first experience with silk worms was slightly traumatic. Elsie (who was a baby at the time) actually managed to get into the box and eat a couple of them! Not one of my most impressive mothering moments! Let's hope this time things end up a little happier for me, the kids and the silkworms. Coming into the school holidays it's looking like they will be a source of interest - and just keeping up the supply of mulberry leaves will keep the kids busy!
