Butterfly Farm

Ages: 4 and upManufacturer: Insect Lore


Raising butterflies from caterpillars is made easy and exciting for kids (and adults) with the all-inclusive Butterfly Farm kit.

Along with a solid introduction to biology and the insect world, kids also learn about the responsibility of raising living creatures and setting them free. The kit comes with a pop-up mesh see through habitat, a cup of five baby caterpillars, food, butterfly feeder, sugar packets, and guide. Our testers appreciated the child-friendly, easy-to-follow with clear, step-by-step instructions and enjoyed watching the children embrace the care and feeding.

One of our testing groups sent us the following note: “Our caterpillars are in chrysalis stage. We’re like new parents anxiously awaiting the Painted Lady Butterflies to emerge!” And all reported success in the transformation and pride, tinged with a little sadness, at bidding the butterflies goodbye.
