From Caterpillar to Painted Lady Butterfly

Raising Painted Lady Butterflies…

Raising Butterflies Hands on Science


This is the  Live Butterfly Kit -: shipped with 5 Painted Lady Caterpillars  that I purchased a few years back.  Each year since my initial purchase, I have just purchase the 5 Live Caterpillars Kit Refill .  Always a hit and I love doing this as much as the kids!

There are 4 stages of Life for a Painted Lady
1.) The Egg (3-5 days)

2.) The Larva or Caterpillar Comes Out! (5-10 days)
3.) The Chrysalis—Metamorphosis Begins (7-10 days)
4.) The Butterfly Emerges! (2 weeks)
