- 5 caterpillars and nutritious food

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 require 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 the incredible growth of your caterpillars. Once your caterpillars become chrysalides, it's 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! You may also place fresh orange or watermelon slices in the habitat for your butterflies to enjoy. Just remember to score the fruit with a knife so the juices come to the surface. It makes it easier for your butterflies to sip!
Our Deluxe Chrysalis Station is a cute and handy way to hang your chrysalides while you wait for your butterflies to emerge. When it's time to move your chrysalides from the cup, simply place the entire lid (with hanging chrysalides) into the slot in the plastic log - then wait for the magical transformation!
Beautiful 3D Butterfly Stickers are also included; these 2-layer 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! This rubber band powered flying toy will keep kids busy for hours. It's easy to wind and release. Again, colors and styles will vary.
Since 1969, Insect Lore has brought science to life in countless homes and classrooms. The Butterfly Garden Gift Set With 5 Caterpillars is the newest addition to our line of signature Live Butterfly Garden Kits.
(Please Note: Butterfly Wind-Up and 3D Butterfly Stickers colors and styles may vary.)

This was just an amazing experience to watch. My 2 year old learned so much watching, learning, caring for his lil buddies n asking questions....Everyone should do this. We're on our second cup of caterpillars n plan on continuing all summer!!!
- Butterfly Garden at Graduation
Every year I treat my preschool class to the experience of "hatching" caterpillars into butterflies. They are so excited when their beautiful butterflies are released at their graduation ceremony. The parents are thrilled, pictures are taken and the appreciation of nature is once again fostered through this amazing experience.
- Pretty cool!
Talk about a photo op! Releasing these babies made for an awe inspiring moment for my littles and a great way to get pictures hard to come by in nature. Watching them turn into cocoons is pretty cool but not as cool as watching them hatch. We have done it every year for three years. We also hatch preying mantis. That it something to see!!
