For more than 50 years, parents, kids, teachers, and students have enjoyed watching the miracle of metamorphosis with this unforgettable butterfly life cycle kit! It's easy to create the right environment for the right insects with this kit, so you can spend your time and energy observing and understanding the miracle of metamorphosis with your kids.

Over a course of 3 weeks, observe and learn as five tiny caterpillars transform to chrysalides then emerge as butterflies. Feed and enjoy your butterflies for a few days, then let them go to pollinate our precious world. When you're ready to start, simply claim your live caterpillars online.

This Butterfly Pavilion kit includes:

  • a colorful, reusable, 2-foot tall pop-up habitat that's perfect for butterfly viewing!
  • a feeding dropper
  • a caterpillar quick guide with complete instructions (which you can also download here)
  • a voucher to redeem at your convenience for 10 baby caterpillars and nutritious food (you'll receive 2 cups, each with 5 caterpillars)
    • Please Note: This item does not contain live insects. It includes a voucher which can be redeemed online for two cups of 5 live caterpillars each. Simply redeem your voucher online, pay $9.95 for shipping, and your caterpillars will arrive at your door within 2-3 days!
