Great way to teach metamorphosis.

This is such a perfect opportunity for all to enjoy watching metamorphosis unfold. I bought this kit for my 2 year old son last summer and he loved it! He was disappointed when it was time to release them but I used that as a teachable moment as well. I'm now going to purchase a kit for his pre-school class so they can enjoy the journey.

Fun and Educational

This was a wonderful project for my two children. I loved that it took them away from their electronics, helped them slow down, and brought us more in touch with the natural world. From the minute our caterpillars arrived, we were fascinated. Every day they surprised us with their growth and voracious appetite. I'd recommend this project to anyone who wants to learn a little and bond with their kids. It's a great opportunity to really observe and discuss what's going on. We'll definitely be purchasing again.

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!
