If your kids are fascinated by nature then this is a wonderful and very unusual gift that will get them up close to some amazing creatures. The Insect Lore Butterfly Garden lets children witness the transformation of caterpillars to butterflies in their own home, and the set is on offer at Amazon. It's down to just £10.39, that's nearly 40% off and the best price it has been for months.
This kit comes with a coupon so that when you are ready you send it off and get five caterpillars complete with food in a clear container so that you can watch them grow. After a week or so they will form their chrysalids, then after another seven to ten days your children will be able to see them emerge as Painted Lady Butterflies, ready to release into the wild.
In the kit you get a mesh butterfly habitat, a feeding dropper, an activity guide, complete instructions, and the coupon for five caterpillars and food.
There is an extra £2.99 postage and packing to pay to get your caterpillars sent when you redeem the coupon, so make sure you factor that in as well. This looks like it will be fascinating for children to watch, and at just over £13 altogether it seems like great value for such an unforgettable experience.
Delivery is free on orders of £20 or more and for Prime members, other wise charges will apply.
