Life Lab

Life Lab cultivates children's love of learning, healthy food, and nature through garden-based education.

Watering is an activity that kids can do by themselves, with little or no instruction. Having kids water their garden instills a care taking ethic.

Kids love to water and having a watering can for every kid makes it even more fun! By collecting the right types of bottles you will soon have a bottle for every kid in your group.

There are many types of bottles that can be used for carrying water. Any large plastic bottle with a built in handle can work. Large salsa, juice, and detergent bottles are all good options. Make sure to rinse well, especially the detergent bottles. If you work with very young children make sure to collect smaller bottles that will weigh less when filled.

Simple steps to make a detergent watering can:

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
