24th Annual Butterfly Season

Caterpillar Adoption Days | March 14 through April 26 


Kidspace is currently closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since we are unfortunately missing our annual butterfly season, please order direct from our partners at INSECT LORE as an at-home learning experience.


Experience the magic of metamorphosis. Each includes the caterpillar food, adoption certificate, and care guide instructions on how to feed, protect, and release your adult butterfly into nature. You can soon meet your Painted Lady Butterfly!
