This is the perfect kit for the eager entomologists out there, as it comes complete with every tool they will need to catch and study bugs, and learn all about metamorphosis! Hatch the caterpillar from the egg, help it eat all the yummy fruit, and when it is super full, there are leaves for dessert! Once your caterpillar is super full, its time to make its cocoon (playdough makes the best home for your caterpillar’s big change!), and when it is ready, you will have a big, beautiful butterfly to admire. 


Suggested learn through play moments:

-Demonstrate metamorphosis through the tools provided: egg (white bean), caterpillar, playdough for the cocoon, and one beautiful butterfly.

-Go outside & explore with the bug tools!


Sensory play is a critical part of your child's development. Sensory kits encourage imaginative and independent play, as well as language development. Sensory kits encourage fine motor skill development and the building of nerve connections in the brain. But most importantly, it's fun! (And hey...maybe you can actually finish your cup of coffee while they are occupied sans screens!)


Colors and contents may slightly vary. Due to the nature of my products, I can’t accept returns or exchanges but please contact me if you have any issues with your order.


Kits are intended for ages 3 and up as small parts are a choking hazard. Play dough is taste safe, but not very tasty.
