Terrarium Workshops for Schools & Clubs

Kids have a blast playing with all the natural elements of a terrariums as they embark on making their very own tiny world. Watch their creativity run wild as the create a mini landscape for there tiny world.

Playing with nature promotes exploration and- curiosity in children. Children learn to care for nature by interacting with it. Plus when interacting with nature they are developing respect for living things and how to be gentle.

Terrariums are special because they are fun to make, need only bright indirect light and no watering! Terrarium building is a great group activity, everyone relaxes and has a wonderful time checking out each other’s work. Engaging with nature relieves stress, restores mental energy, instills a feeling of calmness and is a natural mood booster.

When Jardin Terrariums comes to your school or venue all materials you will need are brought to your location, set up, Kathleen facilitates the activity and cleans up afterward. The activity takes approximately one hour.

Minimum of 10 students (no maximum) for Kathleen to come to you. If you have a smaller group or have a group that feels comfortable with some easy instructions ask about getting a Classroom Kit. 

There are many ways for terrariums to be customized for your group, ask how!
