The perfect at-home or school activity to entertain and teach kids about natural lifecycles, metamorphosis, and change–all through an exciting kit that can entertain kids and adults from caterpillar to butterfly!
1 Kit includes:
- 5 baby painted lady caterpillars in a cup
- Enough food to last until adulthood
- A reusable, 7-inch pop-up enclosure for releasing the adult butterflies
- Butterfly coloring pages
- Instructions for care
Each enclosure can accommodate up to 5 total cups of caterpillars (25 butterflies), so consider purchasing extra cups if you like!
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)!
Free Pickup Available in Draper, and delivery and shipping options can be viewed at checkout. Please contact us for bulk pricing over 15 kits, or for wholesale and distribution inquiries. Kits are available to purchase from April to October.
