Frog Habit, bug habitat, worm farm, butterfly house, salamander and craw fish observatory, you name it your child will discover it all with the Childbrite Science/Habitat Center. Teach your child about metamorphosis by showing him in real time the development of a caterpillar or a tadpole. Turn your Science/Habitat Center into a little green house and teach your child about how plants grow. They can even watch as the roots grow from underneath the clear plastic base.

Frog habitats are fun. And most children, at some point, will catch a frog or tadpole and try to keep it, with or without your permission. They will probably find a bucket, hide it in their little fort in the woods, try to feed it and care for it until the next adventure presents itself. You can imagine the frog dismay when he realizes he has been forgotten about. The Science/Habitat Center offers a safe supervised environment for the frog, where your child can learn about what a frog or tadpole actually eats. Perhaps your child might even come to understand that even though they might have found their frog in the water, he does actually need some solid ground to rest on.

Worm Farms are a great use of the ">Childbrite Science/Habitat Center
. First of all worms are really easy to take care of. You can feed them pretty much anything, old fruit, vegetables, dead leaves even egg shells, paper, banana peals, the list goes on. I don't, however, recommend meat it tends to stink. Kids love to watch the icky worms slithering through the dirt. They might ask questions like, how do worms move without any legs? Or, how do they see without any eyes? Do your homework before you choose your creature to observe or science project. Your kids already think you are supper smart and this is your chance to show off. Another great thing about worms is the fact that they live under ground. This leaves room for another science adventure on the surface. Watch your worms crawl through the roots of your bean plant experiment or just bring life to the bottom half of the aquarium in your beetle observatory.

The most classic use of the Childbrite Science/Habitat Center is the Butterfly Habitat Experience. This project can bring a lot of fun creatures together. You have dirt with worms in it, plants with vegetables growing form them, and a caterpillar eating the leaves. Your child will be captivated by the caterpillar chomping on so many leaves, mesmerized when it covers itself with a cocoon, and imagine your child's excitement when they see the butterfly for the first time after your were right along side of them explaining how metamorphosis works. The best part of this whole process is trying to get them to say metamorphosis.

Take your kids for a hike and explore the world and the creatures in it. Children have the gift of wonder and awe and when they are still small, we are lucky as parents to be able to share their experiences with them. Finding the creature to be observed is half the fun. The Childbrite Science/Habitat Center is only meant to enhance this experience you had with your kids and to take it one step farther. When they wake up in the morning and the first thing they do is check their worms, you know that the experience they had with you will stay with them. This is the joy of the Childbrite Science/Habitat Center.
