View Butterfly Metamorphosis With The Insect Lore Butterfly Garden

Are you looking for activities to expand your child’s understanding of science and nature? Have a budding lepidopterologist (that’s a butterfly scientist for those of us who aren’t quite as bug savvy) in the family? The Insect Lore Butterfly Garden is a reusable butterfly habitat which allows children to observe one of nature’s most amazing miracles. The butterfly garden is made from nylon and transparent mesh which allows for easy viewing of the butterfly metamorphosis and folds for easy storage when not in use. The kit also includes butterfly feeding supplies (you provide sugar and water), a booklet of butterfly facts and simple instructions.

Also include is a certificate redeemable for three to five free (there is a $3 processing fee) painted lady caterpillars. The transformation from larva to butterfly takes about three weeks from the time the larvae are received (they come in a small container with all the food they’ll need while they’re still caterpillars).

The Positives
See butterfly metamorphosis up close. Reusable, collapsible habitat. Includes feeder and complete instructions included. The metamorphosis from larva to butterfly takes about three weeks. Supplies for feeding the butterflies (you provide only sugar and water). The kit comes with a relatively easy-to-assemble observation chamber.

The Negatives
Larvae cannot be shipped outside the Continental United States. Sometimes the caterpillars have a low survivor rate.

So What’s The Scoop?
Children can observe the larvae while they grow, form chrysalides, and finally – tahdah! – emerge as beautiful butterflies. The Insect Lore Butterfly Garden makes a fabulous gift and is a great introduction to the wonders of nature for kids of all ages.
