8 Earth-Loving Products That Teach Kids About the Planet

Here at Zoolikins, we find so much joy in connecting with the planet and we like to start our kids on the Earth-loving path at a young age. There is so much fun to be had on hikes, feeding ducks, getting our toes in the grass, and water play, but sometimes we don’t have time for a big outing. That’s why we’ve brought in a collection of products that allow you to sneak some Earth vibes into your family’s day every day. Check out our collection of eco-kids products that show littles the magic of the planet, responsibility and caring for a plant, and how they can play a role in a brighter future. 

 

Peropon

These adorable Peropons drink water from their tray and like magic feed the plant on their back. The secret is that their pink felt tongue is connected to their plant’s pot. Made of glazed ceramic, Peropons come complete with everything needed to grow -- all they need is your love! 

 

Unicorn Green

Start a tiny garden with your little one! These ceramic unicorn planters will teach the incredible power of a tiny seed. Use the kit to plant either basil or wild strawberry seeds and watch as they grow bigger and bigger. This is a great opportunity to teach kids about soil, pollination, and responsibility. 

Sunography paper kit

Reconnect with nature while you take your kiddo around the neighborhood or in the backyard to collect leaves, branches, and flowers. Just place the item down onto the Sunography paper, put it in the sun, rinse the paper, and BOOM! A magic rich blue print of the object will appear. This is a great way to teach kids about the power of the sun, how it nourishes everything on the planet, and even Earth’s orbit!

Eggling Cactus

These extra-large eggs don’t hatch a little chick, but instead, have a garden inside ready to grow! In the eggling, you’ll find cactus seeds and a growing mixture. Once opened (tap gently with a spoon) sprinkle topped with water, fill the tray with water, and set in a warm spot. Soon the plant will sprout and you’ll have a baby cactus (which can later be transplanted) on your hands. Teach your little about why cactuses don’t have leaves, where they grow, and how photosynthesis works! 


Abby's Garden Planting Activity Set

Garden Planting Activity Set is one of our favorite toddler toys. Kids can watch nature at work while growing their very own garden with their favorite pal Elmo! Little ones join the whole Sesame Street gang in the Growing Magic Guide, and learn about plants, growing, and gardening through unique coloring pages and engaging activities like matching and spot-the-difference. This set comes with everything you’ll need to get gardening, including three planting pots, three packets of seeds, three soil pucks, three plant markers, and four sticker sheets. This garden set is made from 100% recycled plastic and is free of BPA, phthalates, and PVC.


DIY Volcano In A Box

Teach your kid about tectonic plates, the core of the Earth, and volcanoes as they create your own replica of one of Earth's mightiest creations. Kids can sculpt and paint their very own volcano and then parents can help them create an exciting eruption with simple household ingredients. Witnessing the power of the planet (on a small scale!) makes for a day full of wonder and creativity.



Crystal Growing Seasons

With this crystal-growing tree set, you can grow a tree that represents each season! These fast-growing crystals will begin to form before your eyes and the shape of a tree. Watch the magic unfold as you teach kids about our seasons, Earth’s axis, and how trees provide us with oxygen and we provide them with carbon dioxide. Learning that we are intrinsically connected and rely on each other is a beautiful teaching point that instills a love for the Earth!
