Tiny Treasures Pros and Cons
- A different approach to teaching science – would be great for a unit study!
- Easy to use
- Could potentially make a mess (because of plaster), but messes can be cleaned, so that’s not really a con. You could even do it outside to minimize the mess!
Additional Comments from a Tiny Treasures Product Reviewer
“I was sent a Sea Life Amber Dig Kit and a Dinosaur Egg Dig Kit to review. My 5-year-old son was very excited when these arrived in the mail. We began with the sea life kit and were amazed when we opened the package and found little tools for extracting the treasures, goggles, and instructions. Everything was included. All I had to provide was a cup of water.
We poured the water to soften the plaster, and he started digging in (pun intended). As he made advancements and found the first piece of amber, he was beside himself. It was so easy for him to do. All I did was pour water and help him get started. He loved being able to do it himself, and each time he found a piece, you’d think he won the lottery.
When he was all finished, he washed all the pieces, spent time examining each one, had me read the cards that were included for each item inside the amber, and showed his ‘treasures’ to everyone who came in the door.
Aside from being fun, this activity opened the door for conversations about archaeology and archaeological tools, what fossils are and some different places they are found on Earth, different forms of sea life and where they are found in the ocean, and more. We looked things up online, watched documentaries, etc. This one activity expanded into days of learning, and he’s still talking about it. So clearly, it’s perfect for homeschoolers!
The dinosaur egg kit provided more of the same – excitement, questions, research, showing off his treasures, and best of all, LEARNING. As a mom, I was extremely pleased with these activities and will be purchasing additional kits to do with my son in the future.” – Catherine W., North Carolina

“I was sent a Lush and Dew Butterfly Garden Grow Kit to review. My 6-year-old daughter loves planting flowers and loves Butterflies so she was thrilled to use this kit! The kit comes with everything you need to get started. The miniature tools and the water bottle for the seeds were the perfect size for my 6-year-old to use. The Kit also includes detailed instructions on how to plant and care for each seed in the Butterfly Garden. Each seed grows into a vibrant, beautiful flower. This has been such a wonderful hands-on project to do while studying seeds.” ~ Mae T., Texas
