During this time of year, it is important to monitor weather conditions in your area. Daytime temperatures should be over 55 degrees Fahrenheit to safely release your butterflies.

Watching the butterfly life cycle up close is more fun than ever with the Butterfly Garden Gift Set With Live Cup of Caterpillars. Exciting butterfly-themed bonus items make this butterfly-raising kit the perfect gift!

Butterfly Garden Gift Set With Live Cup of Caterpillars Includes:

  • 5 LIVE baby caterpillars and nutritious food

  • Butterfly Habitat measuring 12 inches tall and 6 inches wide

  • Caterpillar Quick Guide

  • Deluxe Chrysalis Station

  • Feeding Pipette

  • Flower-shaped Butterfly Feeder and Cup Holder

  • 3D Butterfly Stickers*

  • Butterfly Wind-Up*

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! 

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!

Please note: This kit contains live insects.

* 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!!
