# Insect Lore Live Butterfly Set: Product Review & Giveaway

***This giveaway is now closed.***

There’s no better learning tool than real-life experiences. That’s why I loved using the Insectlore Butterfly Garden in my classroom and now at home. Seeing the life cycle and metamorphosis of caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly is amazing…to children and adults alike!

(Name the movie that served as inspiration for the video…)

Seeing a caterpillar become a butterfly right before our eyes was incredible. Big Brother woke up every morning asking if the butterflies were out of their chrysalises yet. (And in case you’re wondering, the plural of “chrysalis” is either chrysalises or chrysalides according to Merriam Webster.) We received five caterpillars in the mail and 4 days later, they had turned into chrysalises. Eight days later, all five had emerged as butterflies!

Another wonderful benefit has been that it has relieved many of Big Brother’s fears about butterflies. We’ve come a long way from this picture, taken at the Butterfly Palace last summer…
