Fabulous frogs fill the summer nights with song, and The Butterfly House is throwing a festival in their honor. Visitors to the Frog Festival can play games that celebrate the amazing things frogs can do and how we can protect them in our neighborhoods. There will be frog walks, face painting, live animal encounters and "meet & greets" with Finn the Frog. Kids will even get to take home a frog calling kit so they can join the chorus in their own back yards.
Join in on a pajama party at The Butterfly House with the guest of honor: Llama Llama! Wear your pajamas and enjoy a fun morning filled with crafts, games, and a reading of "Llama Llama Red Pajama."
Each age group will have their own areas for the hunt. Hot cocoa will be provided, and special holiday guests will be on hand to help candy cane hunters. The hunt ends when all the candy canes are found.
