I've never used a kit but we have found caterpillars in the yard and put them into a jar with holes poked in the lid. We place a stick in the jar so that it stands at a slant and then fill the jar loosely with leaves. You have to replace the leaves often because those bugs eat a lot! Eventually they cocoon themselves and turn into butterflies. You just have to watch them to make sure you let them go before they have a chance to move too much in the jar or they tend to shred their wings.
