Witness the wonder of the butterfly life cycle with this deluxe child-and-insect-friendly Giant Butterfly Garden kit! The extra-tall 18" pop-up, reusable butterfly habitat has a zippered door, allowing easy access for care and feeding. Stand it on a table or hang it from the handy Velcro carrying handle.

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 Giant Butterfly Garden kit includes:

  • a colorful reusable pop-up habitat (18" tall) that's perfect for butterfly viewing
  • a feeding dropper
  • a caterpillar quick guide with complete instructions (which you can also download here)
  • a READ ME insert with helpful caterpillar-raising tips
  • (bonus!) Butterfly life cycle figures: the accurately detailed Egg, Larva, Chrysalis and Adult Painted Lady plastic butterfly replicas are oversized for little hands
  • a voucher to redeem at your convenience for 5 baby caterpillars and nutritious food
    • Please Note: This item does not contain live insects. It includes a voucher which can be redeemed online for one cup of 5 live caterpillars. Simply redeem your voucher online, pay $7.95 for shipping, and your caterpillars will arrive at your door within 2-3 days!

Another note: The caterpillars may not survive shipment in extreme heat or cold. Please postpone your order if daytime temperatures in your area are below 55° or above 85°.
