Lifecycle of the Butterfly

What better way to teach your children the lifecycle of the butterfly than to actually watch it! Purchase a live butterfly kit. Your caterpillars will arrive in a couple of days with everything you need. Watch them grow (and they grow HUGE and FAST), climb up the cage to make a chrysallis, and then turn into butterflies. When you’re done watching them, release them into nature!

If you look on-line, you can find many live butterfly kits available. I like this one and have ordered from them for years: Butterfly and Nature Gift Store. They also have other animals, such as frogs and ants, that you can order.

Have you ever raised butterflies before? What has been your experience?
