We LOVE living in Denver and having a great time exploring and finding fun things to do as a family! Last weekend my family had the honor of being guests at Butterfly Pavilion’s Insectival, celebrating their 19th anniversary. The first thing I want to share is HOLY INSECTS we had a magnificent time. This was not your average carnival. It was a hand on, insect interactive family blast of a day.
We started out by holding Ruby, a tarantula, and petting horseshoe crabs.
Of course my super fun husband was entertained by the costumed bug and had a great time being his happy silly self.
The teenagers in our blending family enjoyed the activities as much as the littler kids. I think everyone’s highlight of the adventure was capture and releasing crayfish in the stream.
I was amazed and in awe of the many species of butterflies in the pavilion and thrilled to witness J and Z having so much fun with photography.
I am pretty sure that photography classes are in our near future. Check out their photographs!
Butterfly Pavilion has through the entire experience for families through from “a to z”! Every showcase of species of insects is entertaining and educational. There is so much to learn and understand about how these little critters make our world a better place. They have amazing little jobs that make our planet work. If you like butterflies and puzzles, here is a little wordsearch that I put together for some downloadable fun! You can download it here or by clicking on it below.
Happy Insects to All,
