Explore the Outdoors and More this Springtime

Spring is here and that means so many fun activities and events are blooming this season! While the weather can be unpredictable, take time to stock up on a book for rainy days or sunny day gizmos. Springtime is also the perfect time to start getting outside and exploring. Keep reading for fun ideas to make springtime a time of growth and learning.

Bring nature indoors with you with a Butterfly Farm from the Curiosity Corner, Scott Family Amazeum’s museum store. When you get a Butterfly Farm, it comes with everything you need to raise caterpillars into beautiful Painted Lady butterflies. The kit includes a free voucher for a cup of five baby caterpillars that can be shipped to you whenever you are ready. The pop-up habitat allows you to view all four stages of metamorphosis and the kit also includes a Budding Entomologist STEM Activity Journal full of immersive activities.

While the Amazeum always has something fun around the corner, this spring is packed with extra-amaZING events! Join us on the last Sunday of each month from 2 to 4 p.m. at our Circuit Block Party.

This community event is free and requires no registration, however admission to the Scott Family Amazeum is required. Anyone is welcome to come explore circuits, but purchase of a Circuit Block Kit from Curiosity Corner is
