Creativity for Kids Macrame Terrarium
(Creativity for Kids $23.99 Score:)

A little bit of crafty action combines with science in this winning kit. It comes with all the ingredients to make the macramé sling that will hold the plastic terrariaum and all the decorative stones, potting mix, sand, and quick-to-sprout chia and wheat grass seeds. Before long a little garden will be sprouting where young gardeners can add the decorative little mushroom and deer. Clear directions are included. A great STEM product for future botanists with an artistic twist.

(Alex $19.99 Score:) Preschoolers love the magic of seeing things grow. Apartment dwellers can garden on a windowsill. For the backyard set, more elaborate child-sized tools are available. New for 2004, Garden-to-Go (Alex $19.99 ) is an organizer for the young gardener. Bucket has a plastic container inside for wet "stuff," plus outside pockets for the small trowel, rake, and shovel that come with the set. Also comes with a pack of seeds and gardening glove. Our tester, thrilled with the results brought her plants in for show and tell. (888) 666-2539. Plastic Garden Tools (Little Tikes $2 each for small tools/$13 for a set of three larger tools ) are safer for preschoolers than metal. An accidental swing in the wrong direction will not mean a trip to the ER. They also don’t have splintery handles as some metal tools do, and won’t rust when they are inevitably left outside. Also recommended, Little Tikes’ Little Landscaper Lawn & Garden Cart ($17 ). Unlike a tippy wheelbarrow, it has two front wheels for stable pushing action. (800) 321-0183.
