Amazon has an awesome discount today on one of our favorite summer things! This Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden is on sale right now for only $14.99 and it ships for free with Prime or Super Saver shipping. That’s 40% off the regular price and worth every penny. My sister bought one of these for my daughter several years ago and we have used it multiple times every summer to raise our own butterflies. The kids LOVE it. It’s educational for them and just so cool to watch!

The Butterfly Garden comes with a coupon you can mail in to get your butterfly larvae. You’ll have to pay $5 to process that order. The butterflies they sent to us were painted ladies and the kids loved watching the whole process and releasing them in a local park. After the first year we just collected our own caterpillars from the garden and grew them in the house ourselves. Swallowtail caterpillars love parsley and the greens of carrots, so if you grow these things in your garden you’re apt to find a caterpillar you can raise, too! And that’s free.

We’ve gotten SO much use out of this butterfly house. If your kids don’t have one, I highly recommend it, and it would make a great birthday gift for kids, too.
My kids, releasing our butterfly!
