DIY Terrarium Class for Kids (5-16 Years)

Learn how to make a terrarium and discover the science behind them!

1 hour Class size 1 to 15     label $20

The past year we've felt like we've been growing in a bubble - right? Well, step out of that bubble, and let's make something fun. Try out this kid-friendly terrarium workshop in Adelaide with Sciren and get hands-on with nature!

In this casual class, you and your child will learn all about growing plants in small and large glass vases from an expert gardener and scientist.

Not only will you both learn how to nurture and care for your plant, but you'll also learn the step-by-step process to create one or two of your own terrariums to take home!

Kids can bring a grown-up and show them how great of a scientist they are! Perfect for parent-child bonding days, grandparents and grandkids and unique birthday gift ideas for kids.

We are sustainably focused at Sciren. The majority of our glassware is upcycled or recycled, usually purchased at Op shops. Have a glass vase you want to use? Bring it along- you might walk away with two terrariums!

Adults will work alongside the children, so you'll make one large terrarium together, or one small one each.

Knowledge required
Beginners welcome. This class is designed for adult and child bonding time.
What you'll get
  • Guidance from an expert.
  • Your own terrarium to take home!
  • Your own science lab/garden notebook to keep and track your plant's developments.
  • Plants, soils, glassware all supplied, valued at $40.
What to bring

Sciren offers science-based workshops by teaching science 'secretly' while we craft and chat. We want everyone to understand science, sometimes the science needs translating. We use craft and hands-on workshops to help you learn.

As a plant biotechnologist, I've gone through the education system to find I needed better ways to learn. I kept seeing crafty hobbies as distractions to my learning. Until I realised they were the perfect vehicle to my learning. Making jam - learn about plant cell walls and pectin. Making a terrarium - learn about greenhouse food production and climate change... it's so much more fun being immersed in learning this way!

We'll help you understand the world we live in by using our passion and knowledge, while we chat and have fun.
