teaching about rubber to children

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

teaching about rubber to children

I am keen to show my DD about rubber trees (how latex is trapped), how various items are made, etc.
Is it possible to do all this in Singapore? Perhaps Botanical Gardens have some of the relics of rubber harvesting...
Any kiasu advice would be welcome here.

We joined one of the 3 in 1 adventure tour in Phuket. We were brought to a plantation to show us how rubber was made. The tree was shown and latex was dripping when sliced. Then they showed us a big piece of unprocessed rubber and etc.....
