Life Unfolds in a Butterfly Garden

Creating a butterfly garden is a chance to see life evolve. You can purchase a live butterfly garden that contains a complete kit, including a mesh cage, food, and five or six larvae that will turn into caterpillars and then into butterflies. The butterfly garden offers children an up-close view of the entire process of metamorphosis that is fascinating to witness in real life.
