I enjoy watching them transform.
- Excellent kit, easy to use
I bought this for my 4-year old niece last year; we both loved watching the caterpillars do all their munching, grow, and then transform! We released all five gorgeous butterflies in my community garden, and I'll be ordering a refill for Easter in a couple of weeks when it's likely to stay warmer.
- Worth it!
I have bought this product for the last few years for my PreK class. The learning that takes place is truly amazing! All of our caterpillars develop to butterflies (every year) and the children are so happy....and a little sad...... to see them fly away.
