  1. omg why didn’t I think of this!?!? my daughter would love this, thanks for sharing! I forgot all about these butterfly kids.. I remember doing them in school years ago, lol.

  2. You’re going to laugh but I have a butterfly phobia. I like seeing them at a distance in my garden but not up close and personal. I don’t know why I feel that way. But this would be fantastic for kids. I’ll remember it as a gift idea

  3. This is perfect! We homeschool too and I am always looking for something cool to do. My kiddos have phases where they miss school but I know this will definitely keep them interested!

  4. I am a science nerd and would have LOVED doing this with my kids. What a great experience. This is much better than hatching chicks around Easter!

  5. Oh how interesting! Never knew such a kid existed! Really fun experiment. Did you guys release the butterflies in to the wild afterwards?

  6. Isn’t it amazing to watch their transformation? One of my very best friends raises butterflies in her home and I am still awe-struck by how cool this process it. It’s a miracle they make it to becoming butterflies!

    This is an awesome home school activity. So much fun!

  7. VERY cool homeschool experience for science! When I taught elementary school, we did this yearly. Except I had to go outside each day and hunt for the proper leaves to feed my caterpillars…we had a LOT of ‘pillars 😉 It was always such a fun thing to let them fly …the kids loved it. This is a great find on Amazon…didn’t realize they carried these!

  8. It seems kind of strange to buy caterpillars from amazon but what a great way to show the process up close! I have a bit of a phobia of butterflies so not sure I could do it but they are beautiful!

  9. I’ve never heard of ordering butterfly kits from Amazon. Who knew?! Now I’m curious, because my grandson is the perfect age for something like this. What a fun way to teach them something new! (plus I love butterflies) x

    This is so nice. Seeing a butterfly as it grow and complete the cycle can be a real fascinating view. That is so cute.
