Classroom project
The children really enjoyed, as much as the staff, seeing the caterpillars go thru the changes. Will do again when classes do the science week activities.

We loved the Butterfly Garden! I have used it since to take into our son's 3rd grade classroom to watch other butterflies come out We have kept the cage and hope to order more caterpillars for it this year

We have done this project twice (and my kids are begging to do it again) The kit is wonderful It is such a great experience to watch the change into a butterfly! Highly recommend it!!

A wonderful learning tool! We used this as part of our homeschool curriculum The best part is that you can use this over and over if you order more caterpillars My children learned so much from this! It would make a great gift for any age

This is an excellent way for children to actually see science up close and in action We did this last summer and my children immediately wanted to order more caterpillars so we could "do it again" My kids couldn't wait to get up out of bed to see how the caterpillars had grown and then later to see if they could see one actually emerge from the cocoon Once you get your butterfly garden you fill out a postcard to order your caterpillars They arrived safely in a small plastic container with food in the bottom I placed them on a short table so that both my children could watch them without disturbing the caterpillars My children spent many hours just watching the tiny caterpillars crawl and eat and GROW For best results I would advise following the instructions especially the part about not disturbing the caterpillarswhen they are at the top making their cocoons Wait until they are all at the top in their cocoons then you move them out of the jar and into the butterfly habitat This is best done by an adult I let my children "help" But I was nervous about hurting them My worries were put to rest when the last of our little butterflies finally emerged How glorious to see first hand the miracle of God's transformation from a tiny little caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly My children learned so much from this activity and I plan to order more caterpillars this spring This is an excellent product We tried to "do it ourselves" because I just didn't want to spend the money But we ended up with some dead caterpillars in the bottom of a glass jar and a couple of very disappointed children
