Special guests are BUGMAN, Imagination Station, and the Sierra Club. BUGMAN will have a setup of live insects and specimens inside the Nature’s Neighborhood Workshop. Imagination Station will be on the Eats! Patio showing how to create beauty with household items – a chromatography butterfly using a coffee filter, markers, and water. The Sierra Club will be in the Forest Room demonstrating how insects can indicate the health of waterways.

Other activity stations include Build-a-Bug, Honey Tasting, Spider & Beetle Ball tournaments, and water insects/stream play.

Kids can learn more about Entomology in Home Sweet Home from 10:30a-noon and 1-3p. The Fisher Price Discovery Stage will host 3 shows throughout the day. At noon is the Chidlren’s Animal Show, and 1p is the Un-BEE-lievable Beekeeping Demo, and the final show is Keeper Tales at 2:30p.

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
