As much as my daughter loves butterflies, I may have to pick one of these up for her. This will make a great summer time activity. Amazon currently has the Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden for $11.99 with free shipping for Amazon Prime and Amazon Mom members, of if you order over $25. After you receive your Butterfly Garden from Amazon, you mail in an included voucher and you’ll be sent 5 live butterfly larvae and special food for a $5 processing fee. You’ll then be able to observe the complete transformation from caterpillar to butterfly in 2-3 weeks. Insect Lore even guarantees that at least 3 of the 5 larvae will metamorphose into adult butterflies too.
The kit has great reviews, and you can check it out here.
