Observe the Metamorphosis Up Close
The Butterfly Garden comes with a pop-up butterfly observation habitat, which is a cylindrical mesh container measuring 12 inches tall. Once the caterpillars become chrysalides, they can be transferred to the habitat, where they will complete their transformation into adult Painted Lady butterflies. Children will be excited to keep a close eye on the changing chrysalides and watch this seemingly magical metamorphosis.
Your Very Own Butterflies
Once the butterflies emerge, children can have lots of fun feeding them and watching them eat. The kit comes with a dropper for squeezing sugar water into the habitat for the butterflies to drink. It is recommended that flowers be placed in the habitat for the butterflies to rest on while they enjoy their meals. Kids will delight in observing the butterflies unfurl their proboscises to suck up the sugar water.
Enjoy your butterflies for a few days and then experience the excitement of letting them go to continue their amazing life cycle. Insect Lore recommends that butterflies be released within a week of their emergence, when temperatures are above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. To ensure the safety of your live specimens, delivery may be delayed if temperatures are extreme in your area.
Additional mail-in certificates are available for order, so once you've released your butterflies, you can reuse the Butterfly Garden and experience the magic of metamorphosis again and again.

One of our butterflies just didn't make it. Although it could have been the result of a curious child taking a look without my supervision or just luck of the draw. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Buffy Divine
