My 3.5 year old received these life cycle kits as a gift recently. My eldest is enjoying putting the life cycles in the correct order whilst I give her the names of each stage. I will look at making up matching cards with labels and some nomenclature books later on. For the moment, putting them in order is enough.

- Stage 1: eggs, Stage 2: Larva, Stage 3: Pupa, Stage 4: Adult Ladybug/Ladybird
Insect Lore brand, Life Cycle of a Butterfly

We have been playing the Very Hungry Caterpillar card game recently and re-reading the book to match up with the Butterfly Life Cycle kit.
