This unique, educational project teaches children about life cycles and the natural world. Fun for all ages
This kit was amazing. We ended up with 9 butterflies in the end. It was a wonderful experience, as my kids were extremely involved in the butterflies life cycle, and making sure they were all well care for. It was also a great experience to chat about the cycle of life, and why some of the butterflies didn't make it through the entire process. I will definitely be ordering this again.

I have done this with my day home kids for the past 2 years. The first year, all caterpillars attached properly and all butterflies emerged healthy. Last year, 2 chrysali didn't attach to the towel so I laid them on the bottom. Both emerged deformed and it was sad for us to see, but a life lesson. Great learning experience.
