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 15th September (exact dates are dependent on weather). The first dispatch date for 2015 is scheduled for 27th February, the last date 15th September 2015. 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.

The first Butterfly set I ordered arrived in immaculate condition, thank you. The second box was very battered and scruffy looking. I had no choice but to pass it on as a birthday present, so I hope the contents were in good order.
It's a shame that the caterpillar order can't be made at the same time as the kit as it seems to have been a long wait. It has dampened the excitement a little. However it is a great idea and when they arrive I'm sure that we will enjoy caring for them and watching them change.
The kids butterfly set has ignited our ks1 kids in ways we didn't imagine!
