The boy had seen a commercial on TV for Insect lore live butterfly hatching. Mommy I need this they said. They love anything with science and history. So we were lucky enough to review a kit and will be giving one away.
We received everything we needed to review the live caterpillar’s transformation. You will receive them in a special cup that has what looks like mud at the bottom. It is their food. They may not be active right away but I promise a few hours after arriving they will be all over the place. My kids checked them constantly. As did the daycare kiddos. It took about 9 days for them to cocoon. Then another 5 -9 for them to hatch.
It was amazing to watch and be able to teach the kids about the changing caterpillar. I went onto pintrest and was able to show them the different stages. Along with googling the life of the painted lady butterflies. The kids loved watching the time lapsed video to see what would eventually happen.
Our family and daycare had so much fun watching this transformation. We also did a prediction graph to see when we thought the whole process would end. Blake won. Such and awesome experience. It was just another way to get some bonding time in with the kids. Get them asking questions and more.
I am giving away complete set that includes a certificate for live caterpillars, a net for the cocoons to hatch in. a 19.99 value. Giveaway ends July 25th at 21:00 (9:00pm) cst.
