I got this awhile ago for Christmas. I had a lot of fun raising butterflies in a controlled environment and watching the caterpillars grow and form a chrysalis. I really liked watching them grow and nearly double in size in less than a week!!! I definitely recommend this product to everyone!
- Yearly project
I work at a special need therapy center. Our butterflies became a center wide project. We had a naming contest and a release party. All ages participated, even the therapists! It was a great experience. We will be repeating this for years to come.
