Sproutside at the Flint Children's Museum

To inspire a love for learning and awaken imagination through exploration and hands on play.

Come See What’s Blooming in Sproutside!

Alyssum flowers are blossoming outside our greenhouse. These pretty little flowers are food for caterpillars.

The day lilies throughout the museum gardens are blooming, too. Did you know that these plants are edible? The flower petals are crunchy like lettuce when eaten raw, but you can also find recipes for cooking the flowers. You can even make “pickles” from them!

The pumpkins were planted in the garden today! They are just baby plants right now, with the seed coats still on the leaves. Stop by throughout the summer to watch them grow!
