Children love to learn about the life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly. These coloring pages are a great way to teach them about this fascinating creature. It goes through four stages in its life cycle: the egg, the caterpillar, the pupa, and the adult.

The life cycle of this type of butterfly begins when the female butterfly lays her eggs on the underside of a milkweed leaf. The eggs hatch into caterpillars in about four days.

The caterpillars eat the milkweed leaves. They grow very quickly and shed their skin four times. After about two weeks, the caterpillars are ready to pupate. Also, they spin a silk thread and attach themselves to a twig or leaf. They shed their skin one last time and emerge as adult Monarch Butterflies.

This Butterfly only lives for about two to six weeks. However, the Monarch Butterfly life cycle starts over again when the next generation of Monarch Butterflies is born.

Your kids will love learning about this type of butterfly with this coloring page. They will be fascinated by the way the Monarch Butterfly changes as it goes through its life cycle.
