Description

The Beginner’s Butterfly Rearing Kit is the perfect way to observe the incredible transformation of a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. With our Butterfly Rearing Kit, you’ll be able to watch this process unfold right before your eyes, and learn about the science behind it. The Butterfly Growing Kit contains everything you need to get started, including 5-7 caterpillars, a Caterpillar Cup with enough food to sustain them, a Butterfly Habitat for them to live in and detailed instructions on how to care for them.

Our Butterfly Breeding Kit is perfect for children as young as 3 years old, as it allows them to learn about the metamorphosis of the butterfly in a hands-on and interactive way. Even adults will be fascinated by the process, making it a great activity for the whole family.

With our Butterfly Raising Kit, you can expect to see at least four butterflies develop from the 5-7 caterpillars included in the Butterfly Breeding Kit. We send the Butterfly Rearing Kit weekly, and you can choose the desired delivery date at checkout. The development of the butterfly depends on the temperature, and usually takes 3 to 4 weeks.

At the end of the process, you can release the butterflies into the wild, so that they can live out the rest of their lives in the natural environment. You can also choose to purchase our Butterfly Rearing Kit, which includes a second Caterpillar Cup, with it you can raise even more butterflies.

In summary, with our Butterfly Breeding Kit, you’ll be able to observe the development of a caterpillar into a butterfly, learn about the science behind it, and inspire the whole family. Order yours today and enjoy the magical experience of butterfly breeding!

A miracle of nature, right in our living room and we are there "live". It is a lot of fun and joy to watch the development of the caterpillars into butterflies. We have learned a lot and are looking forward to spring ... we will definitely repeat it. (Two children: 8 and 3 years)

We ordered the caterpillars for our son (5.5). 7 caterpillars arrived and 7 also hatched. Number 7 hatched unnoticed at night and unfortunately tore off a wing in the process and died. All the other Painted Lady butterflies turned out wonderfully and we released them after a few days in the park. It was a very nice experience for the whole family! Gladly again!

It was very interesting, first the caterpillars ate their fill, then they pupated and became beautiful butterflies. I will definitely order some more next year. It worked really well and I can only recommend it to everyone, even if you don't have children. Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com

Wonderful! Great explanation, caterpillars were fit, one unfortunately spun up too much and then couldn't develop properly, but I'm sure that happens in nature too. The meconium takes some getting used to, but fascinating. My daughter's school class was regularly kept up to date on the digital board via the teacher via Schul.cloud with photos, videos and descriptions. Really a great thing! After the washing machine, the Habitat can also be used again and other butterflies can now be observed for a short time. Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com

It is super exciting to watch the caterpillars grow and then hatch. My son is totally thrilled and so am I as a mum. So far, 5 of the 8 caterpillars have hatched and 2 are still in the cocoon. It remains exciting. We will order some more. Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com

The kit itself is great, all but one of the butterflies have hatched, but the pop-up container could be bigger as the butterflies hardly have room to fly after hatching. Due to bad weather, we kept them in it for another day after hatching. Otherwise really great. Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com

The delivery was very fast and all 7 caterpillars have turned into beautiful butterflies. Children's eyes lit up here and we had a lot of fun watching them. Now they are free and go their separate ways. Nevertheless, I have to award one minus point. It is a bit awkward to hang the pupated caterpillars in the tent. It might be easier to simply put the lid on which they pupate into a "stand". Otherwise everything is wonderful! Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com

Each caterpillar became a butterfly, all questions answered in the instructions. The children were very taken with it. We found the habitat quite small and released the butterflies on the same day. Thank you very much. Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com
