Tinkergarten classes are joyful online play sessions that inspire outdoor learning. In each 30-min online session, a dynamic Tinkergarten Leader guides the group through song, movement, play demonstrations, and much more.

In this trial, you will:

  • Experience what class looks and feels like through taking part in a live, interactive session led by a Certified Tinkergarten Leader.
  • Meet a Certified Tinkergarten Leader who will explain the program and demonstrate the kinds of rituals you and your child can expect in the class.
  • Be able to participate in a question and answer session with the Leader.

Other details:

  • You will need an internet connection and a device (computer, iPad or phone).

What is Tinkergarten?

For families with young kids, spending purposeful time outside is more important than ever. To thrive in this dynamic world, children need outdoor play experiences that deliver the hands-on lessons, valuable social interactions, and restorative activity that can’t be gained from the tap of a screen. As parents, it’s our job to ensure they engage in these experiences early and often. But how?

While finding ways to create enriching outdoor moments is essential, it isn’t always easy. Getting outside might be a simple first step, but for a lot of us, knowing what to do next—and how to make it count— just doesn’t come naturally.

We’ve been there. That’s why we started Tinkergarten.

Tinkergarten helps families raise healthy, curious and capable kids. Designed by education experts and loved by busy families throughout the United States, our play-based outdoor curriculum guides parents in raising healthy, confident, and capable kids. Tinkergarten makes purposeful outdoor play doable for every family—rain or shine.

Loved it! Simply contagious. Melissa kept the class moving, she modeled play, and gave me ideas as a parent on how to build imaginative play.
