It’s not too late to share a magnificent nature experience with your kids this summer. Raise butterflies at home! Salt Creek Butterfly Farm offers a butterfly kit with the most popular butterfly to raise through a full lifecycle, the Painted Lady. This butterfly raising kit begins during the chrysalis stage…all you need to do is wait for the butterflies to pop out all on their own! You can either release them right away or choose to keep them for a bit. Feed these butterflies the provided nectar and before you know it you’ll have tiny blue eggs that will soon hatch into caterpillars. Release them outdoors or continue to feed your caterpillars until they too become a chrysalis and the butterfly life cycle begins again!
- (7) Painted Lady chrysalises on gold hangers
- (1) 12″x12″x12″ popup container
- butterfly nectar mix
