Our Basic Butterfly Kit has everything you need! Watch painted lady caterpillars grow and transform into beautiful butterflies in 2-3 weeks. Our teachers’ favorite, year after year.
The Basic Butterfly Kit includes:
- 3-5 painted lady caterpillars in a clear cup with food & a ventilated lid
- Easy cardboard house for your butterflies
- Colorful poster about life cycles & butterfly care
Tiny caterpillars arrive in their own cup as part of the Basic Butterfly Kit. The cup includes food, a paper cover & a ventilated lid. Watch the caterpillars eat and grow, grow, grow!
After reaching full size, caterpillars will hang from the paper cover. Then they will form chrysalises. Remove the plastic lid & then peel off the paper. Use tape to hang the chrysalises in the butterfly house. One by one, chrysalises will open to reveal a new butterfly!
- Shipped March through October
- CT and WA prohibit the release of live butterflies
