Real Live Butterfly Activities

Butterflies are so beautiful and watching their life cycle is amazing making it a great activities for little kids. We received this amazing kit from Insect Lore on

Did you know? Butterflies have four life cycles. Egg, Larva (caterpillar), Pupa (chrysalis) and adult.

With this kit, your kid and you get to watch three of the life cycles.

We had 5 tiny caterpillars arrive in the mail and the best part they are totally self sufficient. Their food is already in the cup. Just sit back and watch them grow.

Within two weeks they began their transformation process. The easiest pet I’ve ever had.

I recommend watching this video that goes into detail about hatching butterflies. I wish I watched the video before the butterflies hatch.

Some of the Chrysalis drop to the bottom of the jar. The video shows you how to move the chrysalis to the enclosure safely.
