Green Kids Crafts: Take your kids on a journey to study the wild and adventurous Rainforest with this jam-packed box, which includes tons of different Creativity and STEM Science Kits, all designed by experts to build confidence, flex creativity, and make kids smarter. Kids will create their own bouncing rubber ball, learn about the science of sound by creating their own rainstick, jungle drums, and string-a-ling, conduct a rainforest pollution experiment, build a rainforest terrarium and make cookies using ingredients found in the rainforest.
Junior Explorers: We love this new subscription program with the mission to inspire and connect kids to wildlife and nature. As city parents we are huge advocates of staying connected to nature and love how Junior Explores allows kids to do so through games, activities and different online missions. We tested out the Mission Biomes and Mission Arctic where my daughter was able to explore ecosystems through an incredible 60+min digital experience. This included educational and engaging story lines that had her involved and so excited as she followed along by reuniting a mother polar bear with her cubs. Additionally, Junior Explorers is committed to teaching kids about how they can protect the planet through action, education and through their give back program, which supports organizations doing important work on the front lines of conservation.
