Making children dress up can help discourage them from jumping into fountains, which is dangerous, a crime, and an insult to whoever that statue of a man on a horse is. Clothe a kid with this Groupon.

Bloom Baby & Kids
Knowledge is free at Bloom Baby & Kids—at least when that knowledge covers cloth diapers or the atomic weight of baby carriers. That’s because owners John and Nellie Sowash host complementary workshops within their retail store, introducing parents to topics such as making baby food at home. The Sowashes teach some of these sessions themselves, as well as bring in other instructors to lend their expertise. It's all part of John and Nellie’s effort to create a close-knit community of parents and kids. In this spirit, Bloom Baby & Kids' team also hosts events throughout the community, including kids' art classes at Millpond Park Gazebo.
These free workshops and events are of course supported by Bloom Baby & Kids' retail shop. Accented by bright blue walls, the calming storefront surrounds parents with clothing, toys, and supplies for babies and young kids. Exemplifying the community-mindedness of John and Nellie, the store sets aside a portion of their inventory strictly for local "made in Michigan" products.
