This childrens butterfly kit gives children the chance to watch the life-cycle of the butterfly close up. A magical experience! When you receive the kids butterfly set, you can send off the enclosed voucher for 5 live caterpillars and food (Your voucher covers the cost of the caterpillars but £2.99 p&p is payable). These caterpillars will then turn into chrysalis and emerge as Painted Lady butterflies. Keep your butterflies in their own Butterfly Garden and then let them go.
This butterfly farm kit comes complete with a fun-filled fact guide containing lots of information on butterflies and metamorphosis.
The caterpillars are usually available from the end of February to September (exact dates are dependent on weather). The first dispatch date for 2014 is scheduled for 25th February. However, if the weather is below freezing the dispatch date will be delayed.
Caterpillar Refill Sets also available.
Three sizes of butterfly set are available: 5 caterpillars (this one) 10 caterpillars (large butterfly set) 33 caterpillar set (ideal for the home or classroom). NB: All of the sets include pre-paid vouchers for caterpillars and not the live caterpillars.
We also sell Butterfly Lifecycle Models. An earthworm nursery and a stick insect set are also available. Spotty Green Frog offers a wide range of products from Insectlore.

Quick delivery, great product and price, just waiting for our caterpillars now, with 2 very excited children!!
Brilliant and I can't wait to get my caterpillars.
This is a very nice, well made kit. The lovely big butterfly house only gets used for a few days though as most of the exciting stuff happens in the little plastic tub the caterpillars arrive in. If you are planning to buy caterpillars every year then it is a worthwhile investment, otherwise you might prefer just to buy the caterpillars separately and make your own house.
Keeping butterflies in a classroom gives children the chance to see the lifecycle of the butterfly at first hand. If you are planning to get a school butterfly kit for the first time and have some queries, read our FAQs....
