Try This: Distribute Butterfly Chrysalises During Good Friday Services

Butterflies inside chrysalises distributed during Good Friday services can emerge on Easter Sunday, if you time it right.

During Easter, purchase butterfly chrysalises online and give them away; it’s even possible to purchase chrysalises that can be timed to hatch within a day or so of your target. The butterfly is often seen as a symbol of the resurrection of Christ. Death, transformation and life are all found in the chrysalis. Distribute the chrysalises on Good Friday, with a special connection card, and the butterflies will emerge on Easter Sunday. Find butterfly breeders in your state at
