Butterfly Season & Caterpillar Adoption at Kidspace in Pasadena

DATES: Thursday, March 14 - Sunday, May 19

MARCH 14 – MAY 19, 2024

Bring your family to a celebration of the habitat and life cycle of butterflies and other pollinators.

Butterfly Season highlights include:

  • Bug Safari: Go on a bug safari to search for eggs, caterpillars, and insects around campus.
  • Fantasy Flutter-by-play: Dress up like a butterfly, climb into a “chrysalis,” and take flight on the flutter path.
  • Pollinator Takeover: View live caterpillars, butterflies, moths, and honeybees. Learn about the butterfly life cycle and celebrate the important role of pollinators.
  • Create a Caterpillar: Shape a caterpillar out of clay, then add seeds to sprout a fuzzy fellow to take home.
  • Flower Showers: Grab a watering can and learn about pollinators rely on while helping the flowers grow.


Caterpillar Adoption
Raise and release native Painted Lady butterflies as a living science project for the whole family. Caterpillar adoptions start at $6. The process takes about two weeks for a tiny caterpillar to morph into a lovely butterfly, ready to be released into nature.
