Kids 11 and up love nature and MindWare has the perfect learning opportunities for them to enjoy. Experience the life of a paleontologist with our dinosaur dig kit. Watch the miracle of metamorphosis with the Butterfly Pavilion. Nature games for kids include a real Ant Habitat, Mega Shark Teeth Kit and even a Microscope Kit with Prepared Slides.
Our exclusive Dig It Up! line of Dino Models is perfect for the future paleontologists. Each kit includes heavy-duty tools to carefully dig out a dinosaur skeleton buried in plaster. Once the bones are excavated, the bones can be washed and assembled into a dinosaur model that can be repeatedly reassembled. Big Dig Dino Models include: T-Rex, Triceratops and Dinosaur Eggs. Dinosaur dig kits are fun for the whole family.
For more sophisticated kids choose our high quality Microscope Kit, book and slides. Created by a manufacturer that supplies medical research laboratories, this is the real deal for those future scientists. Kids ages 11 and up love this scientific set up!
For more nature games for kids try the Make Your Own Doggy or Kitty Day Camp Kits and spend hours leaning about, training and creating experiences for their favorite pets. Kids can even create their own treats for their best friends with the Make Your Own Cat or Dog Treat Kits. All of this adds up to hours of fun with their four-legged best friends.
Looking for more dinosaur dig kit fun? How about the museum quality Mini Dino Excavation Kit: Triceratops. Kids use tools to excavate the mini dinosaur skeleton model in an experience very similar to that of a fossil excavation site. If Dinosaurs are a favorite get the kids the Stegosaurus or Tyrannosaurus 3D Model. Each kit is made of durable cardboard with the individual pieces numbered. Simply glue them together for an impressive dinosaur addition to their collection. Each kit includes educational fact about the dinosaur being constructed.
The Rainbow LED Ant Habitat is one of the coolest gifts out there. The Habitat comes with a special space gel that is both a zero-gravity tunneling medium and food for the ant colony (so no food or water needed)! Kids love to watch the ants working in teams to create intricate tunnels; LEDs in the habitat base rotate through the color spectrum giving kids a spectacular illuminated display.
More nature games for kids ages 11 and up include the fun to create Glow and Grow Terrarium, the impressive Mega Shark Teeth collection, and so much more. Learning about dinosaur digs and nature will provide hours of educational activities eleven-year-olds are going to love.
