If your kids think they have a green thumb, take them to Taman Hati’s terrarium class where they can create an entire miniature green world. Using succulents, cactus, jars, tiny props and a little imagination, this class is perfect for kids to unleash their inner naturalist. Plus, they can bring home their very own little ecosystem to care for.
Founder Jan Zainal is a great handson teacher who begins her classes with a brief introduction on the importance of an ecosystem, the variety of plants and succulents that can be used, and how to put a terrarium together. The best thing about Taman Hati’s kids’ class is that they will create their terrarium with colourful sand and soil to make it more attractive. She also gives advice on the best places for the props to create an interesting scene. Kids aged five and above can take these classes, which last two hours. Jan organises these classes once a month, so keep your eyes peeled on her social media feed to get updates.
Classes are held at The Kitchen Project, Level 5, Verticas Residensi, KL (019 388 0808/fb.com/tamanhatijz). Classes start at RM100 depending on the complexity of the terrarium.
