What out experts think

Children thrive through real-world learning and this Butterfly Garden allows them to get hands-on with scientific concepts such as life cycles and metamorphosis. Little ones were very intrigued by the life cycle and the changes they were able to see right before their eyes. This is especially great for younger children as it introduces them to real-world examples of logical processes, e.g. cause and effect and the growth sequence.

The kit provides lots of opportunities for discussion about the timelines and what the caterpillars were doing, which allowed the children to use observation skills and develop their scientific vocabulary. 

As younger children tend to have a shorter attention span, they often needed support to understand the process and instructions and a little more encouragement to check on the caterpillars after the first few days. However, older children were able to complete the process with more minimal adult support and remained engaged throughout.
