We all know how important play is, and we know that a child's main priority in life is to just have fun. Unstructured play time leads to chances for children to learn and grow on their own, to experience the challenge of facing a problem and solving it independently, to allow obstacles to become opportunities, and to grow through successes AND failures. As parents, looking out for our childrens' future, we are also looking for ways to continually enrich their education and learning. At HearthSong, we are happy to provide families with tools, toys, and activities that combine the fun of play with the benefit of learning! Do you have a young gardener at home? Let them help with our Gardening Tools and Wheelbarrow designed and sized just right for little hands. Grow flowers, vegetables, and herbs on your patio with our pine wood Triple Garden Planter. If your little one is into all things nature, design a bird, butterfly, or bee houseâ€¦and then watch your new friends in their habitat, all while learning about their habits! Watch a chrysalis turn into a beautiful butterfly with the Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden. Observe the stars with the Galaxy Tracker Smart Telescope, or observe small objects and life forms with the Student Microscope Set. For budding scientists, and STEM-loving kids, we have a wide variety of activities that will stretch their reasoning skills. Grow your own crystals in such a cute way-the crystals will add a unique accent to plaster animals and other forms and designs. Learn the basics of programming with our customer-favorite ReCon Robot, or build your own robot! Create a variety of activities and games with one of our STEM building kits. Make your own slime or even a slime clock! A young Beethoven or Mozart at home? Help them along with a Piano Mat Keyboard, ukulele, or a child-sized guitar. Or, if they just love to sing, hand over the Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone and watch the show! For the Picassos out there, provide your children with some free time and one of our Color Pops Paint-Your-Own-Rock Pets. They can use as much imagination and creativity as they wish while designing their new resin critters-use them to decorate your garden space, or give them as gifts to friends and families. Explore creative construction with any of our Connectagons sets or Goobi magnetic construction sets. We even have kits on making perfume, building solar-powered mechanical models, chemistry and physics experiments, and circuitry. Have fun learning!
