How do you teach kids project management?

You give them a project and then let them manage it on their own! All that was needed was a moderator board and kit, a short induction on how to use it and what we planned in the floristic project. And off they went.


In 30 minutes children planned the flower designs that they wanted to create, allocated available resources and made a plan of what they could collect from our forest to complete their creations.


Kids seem to have an innate creativity and ability to sort things logically. All they seem to need is an adult next to them to accompany them in their endeavours. At Schloss Leizen we help children identify and bring out their talents and improve their skills. Read more about learning and playing environment at Schloss Leizen.

Rubber band, oranges and apples

Can you make a solar system out of that?

Yes we can!!!


Last summer the kids discovered the Solar system and learned a lot of interesting facts about its makeup! At our reunion, we decided to brush up on our knowledge and reconstruct the Solar system.



Due to obvious safety concerns, we didn’t use rocks or gas as planet building materials, but chose colourful rubber bands, styrofoam balls, dried orange slices, and, of course, apples!


Our staff at Schloss Leizen creates an atmosphere that encourages kids to ask questions and find answers to them, share their knowledge and skill sets with others.  As usual when we meet up with kids on reunions, the evening ends in a themed quiz party. Take a look at the quiz question:

This planet got its name after Roman king of gods who was also the god of the sky and the thunder. IT is known for its (at least) 69 moons and a big red “eye”. What planet is it?
