To a child, seeing plants grow is like magic. Just as with learning to walk, children learn best by doing rather than by watching. With the Tikes Garden Box, children (and parents) learn that plants, just like people, need care and attention.
We encourage you to make these plant projects a fun family activity. Experiencing a Tikes Garden Box is filled with exploration, education, and fun, allowing kids to experience growing firsthand and participate in active learning.
Plant projects are a meaningful and fun learning experience for children. They offer children an opportunity to learn the life cycle process by which plants are grown, as well as responsibility, caretaking, independence, and environmental awareness. The Tikes Garden Box is a great way to spark a child’s interest in the world around them.
With a Tikes Garden Box, children can learn new skills, have fun, play and develop self-confidence by spending time tending plants and watching them grow. Most children love digging in the soil, getting dirty, creating things and learning about nature. At Tikes Garden, we want to give them (and you) that opportunity!
A Tikes Garden Box cultivates a child's curiosity about nature, plants, and wildlife. Why do the plants need sun? How does the plant “drink” water? Kids have questions and the Tikes Garden Box helps them discover answers.
