An Enjoyable Lesson in Metamorphosis

Teaching children about life cycles is the perfect way to help them connect with nature and understand the world around them. Growing butterflies helps them learn about one of the most famous examples of complete metamorphosis. Hungry caterpillars will undergo a rapid transformation and finally emerge as captivating butterflies with completely different features. With this kit, kids can observe all the changes take place in front of them and get a hands-on experience.

This kit is a favorite among children for science projects as well. They can check and report on the progress of their caterpillars each day. They’ll be able to tell between the different stages of a butterfly’s life cycle. Homeschooling parents can include this kit in their butterfly lesson plan. Growing butterflies teaches children how to handle responsibility as well.

Simplest Way to Raise Butterflies

Growing butterflies with this kit is a fun DIY project. Even if you haven’t raised critters before, you can easily grow butterflies with the help of this kit. Using the included supplies you’ll be able to provide the best conditions for your caterpillars. To guide you through the process we’ve provided easy, step-by-step instructions with the kit. You’ll breeze through the growing period and soon get fully-grown, pretty painted ladies.

You can watch your caterpillars transform into butterflies through the secure habitats. All our habitats are butterfly-friendly and safe for children. You can also use them to keep and raise other small bugs.

Relish the Company of Your Little Guests

Butterflies live a short life. Significant changes happen in them quickly as they transform from caterpillars to butterflies. Your caterpillars will take about 3 weeks to grow into butterflies. You can keep the fully-grown butterflies in the habitat for a few days. After you’ve enjoyed their companionship, you can release them outside into the lap of nature when the temperature is above 50°F.

    Our grown son gave this this to us as a gift and we have really enjoyed the diversion of watching the metamorphosis during the pandemic, so much so that I will be ordering some as gifts.
