Carolina makes it easy to teach the concept of life cycle with live painted lady butterflies! This 8-oz cup comes with 5 Vanessa cardui butterfly larvae and their food. The larvae pupate and emerge as adult butterflies in about 30 days. Witnessing metamorphosis is an experience that children never forget! At least 3 out of 5 larvae are guaranteed to emerge as healthy adult butterflies. Larvae come with care instructions.

After the adults emerge, try breeding them. All you need is the proper host plant for the adults to lay eggs on. The Mallow Plant (item #144042) is the painted lady's natural host. Once your new generation of caterpillars hatch, they will be hungry, and the mallow plant is the perfect source of food for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Painted lady My class of preschoolers were inspired. I teach children with autism and other disabilities. The butterflies inspired our children who are nonverbal to make word approximations to label the stages. One of my professors told us to give young children experiences. This was a great way to give children experiences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved it! This was a great project for my kids at home to be able to observe nature at its best right in their own living room was just wonderful! We enjoyed watching them grow and even held them when they turned into beautiful butterflies. All 6 caterpillars were healthy and survived. They all turned into beautiful butterflies. The package was great with everything you need to begin this fun project. I definitely recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butterflies all hatched! Use your products every year so the children can see the entire butterfly process. We have not been disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for teaching very young children about life. I bought this as part of a lesson the kids were so intrigued watching the large get bigger. They related it to the story of the hungry caterpillar. It bought the story to life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing All of our catepillars died once they began to spin into their cocoons. This left a lot of students very disappointed.
