This butterfly kit now includes two Deluxe Chrysalis Stations and an Insect Lore Butterfly Feeder!

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.

Identical to our Butterfly Garden, but with more caterpillars!

When 5 caterpillars just aren't enough, you can choose the Butterfly Garden With 2 Cups of Live Caterpillars. This kit is identical to our signature Butterfly Garden in every way, except you will receive 10 caterpillars rather than the usual 5.

 Butterfly Garden With 2 Cups of Live Caterpillars Includes:

  • 11.5" Tall Reusable Pop-Up Habitat (folds flat when not in use)

  • Super clear mesh to enable up close butterfly viewing

  • Feeding Pipette

  • Caterpillars to Butterflies Instruction Guide

  • 2 cups of 5 live caterpillars - that's 10 caterpillars in total!

Your caterpillars arrive with all the nutritious food they need to grow into gorgeous Painted Lady Butterflies. Watch them eat, spin silk, and grow to 10 times their original size! When your caterpillars have finished growing and develop into chrysalides, move them to the airy butterfly habitat and watch for the magical moment of emergence. Then observe and feed your butterflies until it is time to let them fly away. 

Please note: This kit contains live insects.

Shipping: Live caterpillars are shipped to destinations within the Continental USA and Alaska. We cannot ship live caterpillars to Hawaii.

Manufacturer Recommended Age: 4 and up with adult supervision.

Amazing Experience!

We have ordered caterpillars from Insect Lore twice now, and both times my girls have loved watching the process of them changing into butterflies! Releasing the butterflies and watching them land on hands and arms before flying away is an unforgettable experience!

Great project and great for all ages.

My kids look forward to their butterfly kit every year. We do this in place of Easter Baskets pretty much every year.
