A wonderful combination of Eric Carle's beloved classic story and actual butterfly metamorphosis, this very special edition growing kit offers hours of fun for all ages.
Heres how the Very Hungry Caterpillar Butterfly Growing kit Works:
1. Redeem the enclosed caterpillar voucher (2.99 fee required)
2. Baby caterpillars will arrive at your door in the post
3. Watch your caterpillars eat and grow (more than 10 times their original size)
4. Soon they will hang upside down and form a chrysalides
5. Then your beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies will emerge, feed and enjoy then for a few days, then its time to let them go.
The kit includes: Pop-up butterfly habitat, a voucher inside the box to redeem for the baby caterpillars, butterfly garden instructions, feeding dropper, a specially shaped butterfly feeder (styles will vary) in the shape of one of the foods featured in the book. Caterpillars are available to order March to Mid-September.
A bit about the brand: Insect Lore was founded in California's San Joaquin Valley by Carlos White, an entomologist working with insects in the agricultural industry. In 1965, he was inspired to develop a kit that would allow people of all ages to witness the metamorphosis of real, live butterflies in their own homes or classrooms.
Today Insect Lore supply a great range of activity kits for children to help them understand the process of an insect's life. Having worked with NASA, they have even sent caterpillars to space!
