Info Card 2

Info Card

This month’s theme is Rainforest Science. The card shows all the month’s projects and on the reverse side listed some interesting information about the rainforest ecosystem and layers. It also showed on a world map where you can locate rainforests.


Each month Green Kid Crafts will send a badge to add to our badge sheet. Here is our first badge!


Ball 2

Project #1: Rubber Bouncy Ball

This project was easy and fun to make. We mixed borax, water, cornstarch and glue to make our own homemade bouncy ball. This project had easy to follow directions and came together in less than 10 minutes.


Rainstick 2

Rainstick 3

Project #2: Rainstick

Using rice, aluminum foil, and a cardboard tube my son was able to create a very authentic sounding rainstick. He decorated it with stickers and feathers which were included.

Sound Toys

Project #3: Rainforest Sound Experiments

Using rubber bands, a balloon, popsicle sticks and little plastic containers we were able to conduct some experiments with sound. Strumming the popsicle stick over the rubber bands made for a perfect lesson in pitch. We could change the pitch by wrapping the bands tighter around the plastic container. The balloon project was a little more difficult because pulling the balloon taught over the cup wasn’t easy and I still didn’t have it fitting quite as it should. It played as a simple drum though.


Terrarium 2

Project #4: Rainforest Terrarium

My son enjoyed this project the most. He placed a peat pellet in water to start with moist soil. Then he added, rocks, mulch chips, moss and two little rubber animals. We put the lid on the terrarium and we’ve been watching the water evaporate, condense on the lid and drip back down in our own mini water cycle.

Verdict: This was our first Green Kid Crafts box and I thought it was a hit. My son enjoyed doing the projects and experiments with me. I enjoyed spending time with him and doing something educational in a fun way. I’m looking forward to seeing what next month’s theme will be!
