As a homeschool family, we have grown so many different types of beneficial insects. Butterflies, and Ladybugs have always been a fun favorite!
There are complete kits that you can buy that include everything that you need. The best way to learn some things is by hands on and with your own eyes.
You can grasp so much more about the transformation that a caterpillar makes into a butterfly when you can watch it with your own two eyes.
Kids and adults both usually enjoy the process. I mean, I see my other mom friends post videos and photos when they do these projects with the kids and their excitement is just as enjoyable to see.
You can totally observe the entire metamorphosis! You will be able to watch the caterpillars grow, build a cocoon and then the big reveal when they reemerge as a butterfly!
Right now you can buy some of these kits for up to 20% off!
If you get one (or a few), please keep in mind that you need to make sure that the weather temperatures are between 55 and 85 degrees. This is to make sure the caterpillars survive the trip.
