This kit is great! We used this for a homeschool project for a 3 and 4 year old. It comes with everything you need and you order the caterpillars online. It was so good that I bought a second as a gift for another child.

This butterfly bungalow was amazing! My children (2&4 years) both loved waiting for the caterpillars to make their cocoon, and checked on them daily to see if they had started to hatch! I will most likely buy the caterpillars every year and do this activity annually since we enjoyed it so much.

We received our bungalow and then we ordered our caterpillars and got those in the mail within a few days. We got to watch them crawl around and it for days and finally they made their way to the top of the cup and went upside down and got ready to chrysalis. They stayed like that for a few days to get harder to transfer them to the bungalow. We watched them every day until the turned into butterflies! My kids loved being able to let them go and have them land on them before they flew off. I would highly recommend this product. My kids loved watching them everyday to see what they were doing. We would definitely buy this again!

The Butterfly Bungalow is such a neat science kit. It isn't instant gratification because you have to order the caterpillars(heads up, you have to cover the shipping/handling cost $8.95 USD). Still waiting for my caterpillars to arrive, may not get them as the weather is getting cooler. The concept is neat tho. My daughter is very anxious to watch the transformation.

This was a lot of fun to do with the kiddos. They really enjoyed being able to see the butterflies grow and then let them fly free. Tons of fun and well worth the purchase 😊

This was a very educational experience for my 5 year old and her kindergarten class. It comes with a certificate to order caterpillars, you have to pay for them separately because of shipping. You get 5 caterpillars, food and very clear instructions on how to take care of them. Within days the caterpillars formed chrysalis' and when they emerged, they were beautiful painted lady butterflies. Very educational and entertaining. The children loved it.

Butterfly kit that helps kids to learn about life science

My kids (ages 4.5 and 6) LOVE butterflies so they had so much fun watching the transformation from caterpillars to chrysalides to butterflies! We have done some other butterfly kits but I really liked this one the most because it includes extras like a magnifying glass, activity guide and even a detachable shade for the habitat! This is such a great way to teach kids about life cycles and life science at home and it's a good hands on way for kids to see the transformation with their own eyes! We absolutely loved this kit and will definitely buy it again next year!

Perfect Way to Grow Butterflies

Lots of the negative comments are from customers expecting the caterpillars to be included - they are not like the listing says! The caterpillars are shipped separately. My whole family really enjoyed watching the process of metamorphosis of the caterpillars turning into butterflies. It became part of our daily routine to check on their progress. We had 5 beautiful butterflies that we released in our backyard. It was awesome! We will do it again next year and just pay for the caterpillars to be shipped to us.

I bought this for my daughter who is going into 1st grade. They talked a lot about the butterfly life-cycle in her Kindergarten class. I think I enjoyed this as much as she did. We received 6 caterpillars and all 6 turned into butterflies!

Missing pieces and no help from company

The size of the butterfly house is perfect. That's about the only good thing I can say. Ours came without the activity guide, the chrysalis log, and the caterpillar certificate!!!!! I e-mailed the company with this info. and have heard nothing back from them. Don't waste your money on a kit that isn't complete!
