- Great Learning Opportunity
All five of our little hungry caterpillars turned into beautiful butterflies! It was such a treat to watch them grow and change. My kids learned a lot about metamorphosis and we've been having a lot of fun watching for our butterfly friends in the garden. 5 stars!
- Worth the expense! Fascinating fun!
Our family enjoyed this so much! It's fascinating to watch them. Ages 4-54 in my house and we can't wait to order more! It seems a bit expensive because you have to purchase the caterpillars and pay the overnight shipping, but it is well worth the money. All but one of our caterpillars became butterflies. My cat knocked the habitat over and one chrysalis was ruined.
- Awesome experience!
My mom is a teacher and has used these for years, so when I had my kids (now age 3 and 19mo), I was excited for them to learn. These caterpillar cups were perfect and my son loved to watch them grow bigger. He would be so excited if he could see them moving. Once they spun their chrysalises, he would tell everyone he met about the life cycle of a butterfly. Though only 4 of our 5 made it to this stage (one died as a caterpillar), he loved naming them and watching them flutter around the habitat. Tomorrow is our release day, and I can't wait to watch his excitement!
