During this time of year, it is important to monitor weather conditions in your area. Daytime temperatures should be over 55 degrees Fahrenheit to safely release your butterflies.
Watching the butterfly life cycle up close is more fun than ever with the Butterfly Garden Gift Set With Live Cup of Caterpillars. Exciting butterfly-themed bonus items make this butterfly-raising kit the perfect gift!
Butterfly Garden Gift Set With Live Cup of Caterpillars Includes:
- 5 caterpillars and nutritious food
- Butterfly Habitat measuring 12 inches tall and 6 inches wide
- Caterpillar Quick Guide
- Deluxe Chrysalis Station
- Feeding Pipette
- Flower-shaped Butterfly Feeder and Cup Holder
- 3D Butterfly Stickers
- Butterfly Wind-Up
Feed and observe your very own beautiful butterflies for a few days before releasing them into the wild! The entire transformation takes about three weeks, depending on the temperature and humidity in your area. There is no need to feed your caterpillars; all the nutritious food they require to become beautiful butterflies is included in their cozy cup.
The adorable flower-shaped butterfly feeder doubles as a handy cup holder while you watch the incredible growth of your caterpillars. Once your caterpillars become chrysalides, it's time to move them to their airy mesh habitat - perfect for butterfly viewing! Use the feeding pipette to place delicious sugar water, or nectar, on the sponge in the butterfly feeder; your butterflies will thank you! You may also place fresh orange or watermelon slices in the habitat for your butterflies to enjoy. Just remember to score the fruit with a knife so the juices come to the surface. It makes it easier for your butterflies to sip!
Our Deluxe Chrysalis Station is a cute and handy way to hang your chrysalides while you wait for your butterflies to emerge. When it's time to move your chrysalides from the cup, simply place the entire lid (with hanging chrysalides) into the slot in the plastic log - then wait for the magical transformation!
Beautiful 3D Butterfly Stickers are also included; these 2-layer stickers let you add glittery butterfly fun to almost any crafty project. They're great for decorating notebooks, greeting cards, or scrapbooks. Colors and styles may vary.
There's more - see how high your Wind Up Butterfly can Fly! This rubber band powered flying toy will keep kids busy for hours. It's easy to wind and release. Again, colors and styles will vary.
