Description

Give every child the Gift of Metamorphosis with the Live Butterfly Garden!

Choose to receive the kit either with a voucher or with live caterpillars immediately (by selecting a send out date).

Watch the Miracle of Metamorphosis Up Close

This educational kit gives children, students and families an unforgettable opportunity to watch caterpillars change into chrysalides and then emerge as beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies. Raise and feed your very own butterflies and then release them into the wild! The entire transformation from caterpillar to adult butterfly takes about three to five weeks.

See An Amazing Transformation

5 caterpillars (a live butterfly culture) will arrive in a clear plastic cup with all of the nutritious food they need. Place the cup in a safe place away from direct sunlight. The caterpillars will remain in the cup and will eat, spin silk and grow to TEN times their original size! After seven to ten days they will hang upside down and harden into chrysalides (chrysalides are also known as pupae).

Raise Your Very Own Butterflies

The Butterfly Garden Habitat is a reusable, cylindrical mesh container perfect for up close butterfly viewing! When not in use it folds flat for easy storage. Once the chrysalides have hardened, gently move them to the pop-up butterfly habitat. It will take about seven to ten more days for them to complete the transformation to adult butterflies.

       The Live Butterfly Garden Includes:
•Pop-up, reusable 30cm tall mesh habitat perfect for butterfly viewing!
•Feeding Pipette
•Complete Instructions
•Voucher for five live caterpillars/Cup of five live caterpillars

Ages 4+

Price: £20.00 incl VAT  (£16.67 ex VAT)

  • Brilliant! by Carla

    Bought this kit for my 5 yr old son, he's a massive bug & insect lover. And I have to admit I enjoyed it as much as he did! All 5 tiny caterpillars grew huge day by day, made their chrysalis and turned into butterflies. It was amazing to watch. We kept them fora few days feefeeding them fruit and nectar then set them free. Would recommend it to anyone and willdef bbe doing it again next year!

  • Amazing!!! by Kimberley

    I ordered this to be delivered on 6th March 2015. It arrived just in time for my daughters birthday. She was over the moon with this gift. I have to say I have been engrossed everyday to see if the tiny caterpillars had grown. Today 31st March 2015, we have 5 beautiful butterflies, 1 very happy little girl and an amazed mummy. What an incredible process to watch. We will be releasing them in a couple of days. I would highly recommend Insect Lore. I have to say I was a bit nervous about what state the caterpillars would be in when they arrived, but they came securely packed in a box with instructions and all the kit needed. Well done Insect Lore. 5+ stars!!!

    A brilliant set. The kids absolutely loved watching them change from small caterpillars through to butterfly's that they were able to release. We will be purchasing refills for years to come.

  • Excellent product for school and home use. by Carole

    I purchased this product for my class several years ago I use it every year and it is still in a good condition. Each year I order more caterpillars using the voucher system. It is a marvellous educational product which the children love. There are also other products to enhance learning available from this company.

  • Phenomenal! by Nicola

    1 Star 2 Star 3 Star 4 Star 5 Star

    I ordered this kit with some scepticism as to whether or not it would actually work - I received 5 tiny caterpillars in the post and 3 weeks later have just released 5 beautiful butterflies! Both my son and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the stages and then being able to release them by hand was the icing on the cake! My son has autism and it's been a real test of patience for him, but I'm so glad I ordered them and persevered as it was such an educational experience for us both!! Highly recommended! Can't wait for our next kit!!
