Ter­rar­ium-mak­ing

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Learning -

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.
