Butterfly Children’s Activities

March 1 April 30, 2017

Butterflies are blooming in the Lena Meijer Children’s Garden with engaging outdoor activities:

• Fly like a butterfly, wrap up like a chrysalis, curl up like a caterpillar, or crawl out of an egg using life cycle costumes and your imagination.
• Perform your own butterfly-themed puppet show or read about moths and butterflies in the Log Cabin.
• Hunt for butterfly and moth life cycle replicas with a guided activity in the Kid-Sense Garden.
• Look for images of Michigan butterflies as you navigate the Butterfly Maze.
• Enjoy a springtime puppet show on the Log Cabin lawn; days and times vary.
• Become a Monarch butterfly while you take an imaginary journey and overcome challenges during a Monarch's Migration game.

There’s something for all ages! Activities vary daily; check at the Information Center for what is happening each day.
