These Carolina® butterfly kits make keeping live butterflies simple, fun, and affordable. Each kit comes with everything you need to raise painted lady butterflies from larvae to adults - including our improved freestanding mesh Butterfly Sanctuary. It's simple to set up, easy to clean, great for viewing, and collapses for convenient storage.

You can also enhance your butterfly classroom experience with the V-Scope Explorer: Butterfly Life Cycle Interactive Activity (item #522464). Each kit includes 1 year of FREE single-teacher license access to butterfly videos and images that can be used with interactive whiteboards and teacher presentation stations.

The Demo Kit contains 10 larvae and enough food to last from metamorphosis to chrysalis. Also includes butterfly sanctuary, instruction book, cotton wick, and foam rubber flower. The Classroom Kit allows students to work hands-on with living butterflies. From a culture cup that contains 33 larvae and food, each student (or pair of students) transfers a larva and food to its own culture vessel, creating an individual chamber for observation. The Classroom Kit Refill includes 33 to 35 larvae, culture medium, 33 culture vessels with lids, filter paper, and 2 spatulas.

 
 
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Generally good, but maybe a bad batch? We've been ordering these painted lady caterpillars for our science teaching methods class from Carolina for years! Delivery has been right on time (especially important for live specimens) and the caterpillars were always viable. Unfortunately, our last batch was basically a dud. When we received the larvae, at 1/3 to 1/2 were already dead. I've never had this problem before, so was a bit surprised. Not sure if this was a shipping issue (e.g. too cold, too warm, etc.) or something else. The survivors grew as we expected, and were able to transform into butterflies as expected. I will likely go back to Carolina for these in the future, as they remain the best option for such live specimens and their track record is generally good. Just note that sometimes, there may be a 'bad batch'.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from butterflies in the classsroom The delivery was quick and on time. I was disappointed about not having enough lids for the cups. I needed to put more than two caterpillars in a cup. Unfortunately, those caterpillars didn't make it to the chrysalis stage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for any classroom! I bought this kit for our children's ministry at church. The students were able to watch them grow and transform throughout the process. It was perfect! The kids loved it and I plan to do it again next year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butterflies Kit and Owl Pellets Kit I teach a Kinder., 1st grade, 2nd grade class. One of my 1st graders asked if we could dissect owl pellets after reading a non-fiction story about owls. I ordered the kit with some hesitation, because my students are so young. They loved it and learned a great deal! After that success, I ordered the Butterfly kit with the Mallow plant. They are learning so much and so engaged!! When I learned that our school site has money to spend on supplementary curriculum, I made a list of requests for various science kits for next year. I am so excited! Next year's science projects will be wonderful!! Susan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Science project I teach special needs students and this was their first experience. The enjoyed raising thier caterpillars. They were estatic about seeing their caterpillars turn to butterflies. Almost every one of them survived and we have a real butterfly house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I purchased this at the end of the year, and I was unsure if I had enough school days for the growth cycle. I called customer service and they were INCREDIBLY helpful. They knew the answer to all my questions, and I ultimately had just enough time. I ordered the kit that should have had around 30 caterpillars, (it arrived early!) but we received nearly double that!!! I figured we would lose a lot (and that's why we received so many), but pretty much all of them formed cocoons and emerged. My kids loved this. Will be ordering again next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful caterpillars I have done these many times in kindergarten but now am using them in my garden club. I received many more caterpillars than i expected which , as wonderful as that is, means I probably do not have enough food for the extras. Hopefully some of the extras will survive to chrysalis. I know that most of the others will survive - great product.
