10 caterpillars (butterfly larvae) will arrive in 2 clear plastic cups (5 caterpillars per cup) with all of the nutritious food they need to form into healthy adult butterflies. Just place the cups in a safe place away from sunlight or drafts and watch your caterpillars become little eating machines that grow to TEN times their original size!

Your Giant Butterfly GardenĀ® also includes the Painted Lady Butterfly Life Cycle Stages. These meticulously detailed figures are the perfect educational accessory for this kit. Oversized for little hands, the eggs, larva, chrysalis and adult butterfly are made of durable plastic. They encourage up-close examination of the Miracle of Metamorphosis.

Your loveable butterflies are a joy to observe, but it is important to release them outdoors within a week of their emergence from the chrysalides. The release of your butterflies offers children yet another valuable lesson about the necessity to allow their butterflies to continue their important life cycle. Happily, butterflies often remain in your garden for a few days after release!
