Getting Your Kids Involved And Interested In Nature
Are your kids lazing around at home watching TV and you would like to find some activities for them without having to step out of your house? Well, here is a good place to start! :)
How about getting your kids do some activities that would spark their interest in nature?
In this page, you will find some neat and interactive toys that will help you in fostering your child's interest in nature. They're fun and an alternative way for yourself to get involved with nature as well, all in the comforts of your home!
Ages 3 & Up
Like the Pandora jungles from Avatar or some lush, colourful forest from an alien planet, Carnivorous Creations features several of the most famous carnivorous plants in the world. But fear not, unless you are a fly, these flesh eating flowers pose no threat to you.
The plants that you will find in it includes the Venus Fly Trap, Pitcher Plant, Cobra Plant, Sundew Plant and the Trumpet Plant.
Ages 3 & Up
Learn all about ants the way our fearless astronauts do with the AntWorks SpaceAnts habitat. Developed by NASA, this ant colony is unlike any ever created.
Fully self-contained, it requires as little attention as possible, other than the hours your kids will spend watching the ants go about their lives, of course!
World Alive Worm Observatory
Ages 3 & Up
Once you and your kids experience the exciting things the World Alive Worm Observatory has to offer, calling someone a worm will start to seem like a compliment. This incredible kit will enlighten your kids to the many amazing details of the life of an earthworm.
Add to that some fun activities and proper care instructions and you're certain to find this kit as interesting as any nature shows on T.V.
The Amazing Dinosaur Plant
Ages 4 & Up
If your kids love both dinosaurs and plants, this could be a great gift!
They call it the The Amazing Dinosaur Plant because of how long it's been around. But unlike the dinosaurs, this plant has survived for millions of years and, thanks to its uncommon abilities, might very well be able to live forever.
Deluxe Triassic Triops
Ages 6 & Up
They're not cloned from ancient DNA found in fossilized mosquitoes and they're not from whatever island Godzilla hailed from. Deluxe Triassic Triops is an ancient creature that has been around far longer than most organisms on this planet.
The only other animal you're likely to find that's been around as long is the alligator and, well... good luck with that. But if you want an ancient creature to tend to that won't tear you to pieces, you want Deluxe Triassic Triops!
World Alive Cactus Garden
Ages 6 & Up
Cacti may live there but you wouldn't want to call the desert home, would you? So why not do these little guys a favor and bring a few of them intro your home and introduce them to your kids with the World Alive Cactus Garden. With it your kids will discover one of the countless wonders that exist all around us.
World Alive Interactive Plant & Insect Habitat Kits
Ages 6 ~ 8 & Up
Besides cacti and worms, there's many more exciting varieties to choose from.
World Alive Interactive Plant & Insect Habitat Kits provide an entertaining way to study the biology of plants and insects.
You can choose kits from Praying Mantis, butterflies to ladybugs. Do note, however, that the insect eggs are not included with the kits. You have to purchase them seperately.
Well, hope you find it helpful. We've now come to the end of Getting Your Kids Involved And Interested In Nature.
