The perfect at-home activity to help entertain and teach your family about natural life cycles, metamorphosis, and change, through an exciting experience that can entertain kids and adults from caterpillar to butterfly! Cups include 5 baby caterpillars and food to last until adulthood. They can be purchased on their own or as a refill cup to the Home Starter Kit.
It takes about 8 days on average for the caterpillars to reach the chrysalis stage, and another 8-10 days for them to emerge as butterflies. You can plan on the whole process taking 2.5 - 3 weeks from start to finish. If timing is a concern, you may place your order and pick it up later this Spring (just let us know in the comment box as you check out)!
If this is your first time with butterflies, we recommend the Home Release Kit that includes the popup enclosure to get started! For Teachers and Group settings, we recommend our Large or Extra Large Painted Lady Kit!
This item is generally available to purchase from April-Oct in Utah, and year-round in warmer climates
