Grow Butterflies
It’s miraculous to behold a squirmy little larvae that spins a cocoon and grows into a beautiful butterfly, all before your very own eyes. This inspiring activity will teach kids about respecting and appreciating nature, as well as  about the concept of metamorphosis. Growing butterflies at home requires some planning ahead, so order the kit now if this is an activity that would interest your kids! Learn more about growing butterflies at home and how to order the kit here.
