Summer Fun: Our Free Day at The Butterfly House

Yesterday morning me and my kids went to The Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House at Faust Park here is St. Louis.  The first Tuesday of every month, The Butterfly House (as well as The Botanical Gardens) are free to get in from 9 a. - 11 am.  I have a summer full of fun, free things for the kids to do this year, and they all focus on something educational, Girl Scouts, and lots of FUN!  During our visit we explored different types of bugs, walked among a large variety of butterflies, searched for hidden gnomes, completed a scavenger hunt, watched a movie, and then the girls completed their Girl Scout booklets while little man played on the playground just outside.  The kids had so much fun, they hardly had a clue they were learning anything!  Our day was far from finished though.  Once we wrapped up at the Butterfly House, we walked to the St. Louis Carousel, and then enjoyed a picnic!  Once we wrapped up our day at Faust Park, we loaded up in the car, and went on a hunt for some of the St. Louis 250th Birthday Cakes scattered all around St. Louis!

Find out about the Butterfly House's Girl Scout patch program HERE.  The cost of the booklet and patch is $3.50.
