Witness the magic of biology as tiny larvae bloom into beautiful Painted Lady butterflies. This Butterfly Garden® is STEM Authenticated, and provides children with a hands-on opportunity to explore, grow, and learn about the natural world.
The Award-Winning Butterfly Garden is a great experience for the whole family to share and the included STEM Journal is filled with science, math, and writing activities. The Butterfly Garden is an immersive 3 week project.
Your larvae will be busily eating, molting, and growing for about a week to ten days. Once they have stored enough energy, they will attach themselves to the walls of their habitat to begin the chrysalildes stage of their lives. Once the adult butterflies emerge from the pupas and extend their delicate new wings, they will rely on you to provide their food. Then set them free into your backyard, where they will help pollinate our world.
This educational kit includes a voucher to redeem online when you are ready to receive your butterfly larvae. Five baby caterpillars will be shipped to you and all the food they need in this early stage of life (3 out of 5 caterpillars are guaranteed to develop into butterflies).
Please check the weather in your area. Daytime temperatures must be 55 degrees Fahrenheit or above when you release your butterflies.
