Butterfly metamorphosis is more exciting than ever with the Butterfly Garden Gift Set With 5 Caterpillars from Insect Lore. The perfect gift for family and friends, this enchanting educational kit includes everything you need to raise beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies – plus, exciting butterfly-themed bonus items. This attractive gift set comes with a cup of 5 caterpillars and everything they need to grow from caterpillar to butterfly. Feed and observe your very own beautiful butterflies for a few days before releasing them into the wild! The entire transformation takes about three weeks, depending on the temperature and humidity in your area. There is no need to feed your caterpillars; all the nutritious food they need to become beautiful butterflies is included in their cozy cup. The adorable flower-shaped butterfly feeder doubles as a handy cup holder while you watch your caterpillars grow to ten times their original size! Once your caterpillars become chrysalides, its time to move them to their airy mesh habitat – perfect for butterfly viewing! Use the feeding pipette to place delicious sugar water, or nectar, on the sponge in the butterfly feeder; your butterflies will thank you! Complete instructions are also included with your kit. The Butterfly Garden Gift Set also comes with a packet of Live Butterfly Garden Flower Seeds, specifically chosen because they grow into flowers that attract real butterflies! Beautiful 3D Butterfly stickers are also included; these 2-layer foil stickers let you add glittery butterfly fun to almost any crafty project. They're great for decorating notebooks, greeting cards or scrapbooks. Colors and styles may vary. There's more – see how high your Wind-Up Butterfly can fly! The colorful Wind-Up Butterfly is a rubber band powered flying toy that will keep kids busy for hours. It's easy to wind and release. Again, colors and styles may vary.

Beyond Expectations

I bought these for our homeschool science project during our animals unit. After reading reviews, I expected only 2-3 caterpillars to survive. But we were sent 6, and all 6 have made it! I was really surprised at how small the caterpillars were. But they grew quite large! I was also surprised at how much silk they make and how many times they shed their exoskeleton. We are in the chrysalis phase right now, which is boring to watch, but still very full of excitement because we know what’s coming. Even my 2 year old enjoys watching these little guys. Highly recommended! We will definitely be doing this again!

Will buy again and again

I bought this Butterfly Garden kit for my two toddlers who are 2 and 4 years old. We have watched youtube videos of the Life Cycle of a butterfly and thought that this would be neat to see in real life. We received the caterpillars 14 days ago and they were all alive. We were so excited because it was around 10 degrees they came in the mail. We left them in their box for an hour as the instructions stated. It has been fascinating to watch these caterpillars grow from a 1/2 inch to about 2 inches and now they are in the chrysalis stage (as of last night). My 4 year old and I were watching them shed their exoskeleton. This is a truly amazing experience and wonderful for kids to see in person. We are looking forward to placing them in their net this weekend. The instructions are very helpful and they provide everything you need in the kit. I will be purchasing more caterpillars in the future. Once you purchase the kit, you only need to purchase a cup of caterpillars (5) and re-use the net. You may need to purchase more food.

100% Success for us!

Love this! We had a 100% success rate with our caterpillars, today the fifth butterfly emerged. I have taken a butterfly out from time to time and enjoyed having it sit on my finger. After about a day they got better with their wings and we set the first bunch free two days after they emerged. They seem to emerge from their chrysalides very fast. Three emerged the same day and we were barely able to catch one in the process of emerging. I did notice a couple signs, in my opinion, that one is on the verge of emerging: it seems the chrysalide darkens very much and you soon see through it to see the spots on the wings. That is a good sign it will be emerging within minutes almost. I will be saving my kit to do this again. I would definitely recommend this brand. Thank you!

Terrific educational gift!

I got this as a gift for my son to help teach him about insect life cycles. He was so excited to see the caterpillars crawling around in the cup when the box arrived (he referred to them as “baby butterflies”).

Incredible experience!

I ordered this to go along with my daughter’s homeschool curriculum, but I immediately ordered another for a friend’s daughter for her birthday. As soon as this arrived on the doorstep my kids were excited. Every day they would get up and the first thing they would do is run downstairs to see what had happened. Which, was always something because they grow so fast!

My 6 year old and 2 year old really enjoyed watching the caterpillars grow and turn into butterflies

Wow! My 6 year old and 2 year old really enjoyed watching the caterpillars grow and turn into butterflies. We received the 5 caterpillars and at first you may think one or some are dead, but just give them a little bit of time to perk up after a rough trip. All 5 of our caterpillars were fine and successfully grew and made their chrysalis and turned into butterflies! Wonderful kit.

Great learning experience

I bought this for myself, a 42 year woman. I love butterflies and always wondered how the process worked. This is a great learning experience. They start out so tiny and end up so big as caterpillars. I have had 2 out of the 5 turn into the butterflies at this point. I HIGHLY recommend this for anyone curious about how the process works. The instructions are plain and simple. You will not be disappointed.

So far, so good. I received five caterpillars, and four of them currently are hanging from the lid, with

I purchased this set for my son when he started bringing gypsy moth caterpillars into the house as pets. He loves bugs and I thought it would be a great experience for him. I was right!
