Original Butterfly Garden
This might just pry the kids away from their electronics, as they monitor the awesome process of metamorphosis!
Kit comes with a pop-up habitat, instructions and care guide. Send away certificate included ($7.95 handling charge) for 5 baby caterpillars and food.
Spend more than a week fascinating the kids as they grow and spin silk. Then, hanging upside down, they will harden into chrysalides – and the countdown begins. Another week or so and look: magnificent Painted Lady butterflies!
Science and patience were never more fun. From Insect Lore, for ages 4-11 yrs.
