How to make the most out of your Seedling kit?
1. Encourage your child to think creatively. Our kits are designed to nurture imaginative solutions. In other words, there’s no one right way to do it.
2. Experiment! Let them play around with color, materials, tools and design. Even if it leads to mistakes. No matter what, it’s a great learning experience.
3. And have fun! Making something together is a wonderful way to create memories you can share forever. And don’t worry if you don’t finish the project in one session. Pack it away for another day.
