Craft activities with the kids don’t need to break the bank. There are plenty of things you can make out of the stuff that’s lying around in your home!
A terrarium is like an aquarium for plants. You can plant your terrarium to look however you like and you can change it to match the seasons.
What you will need
Ready? Let's get gardening...
Before you start, make sure your glass container is clean. Then add a layer of rocks (about one inch or so deep) – these will help with soil drainage, so the roots of your plants won’t get water logged.
Add a ½ inch thick layer of charcoal. Then fill the container up to half-full with potting soil.
Next it’s time to plant your plants. Carefully tease the roots apart and arrange them so that they look nice. But remember to leave some space for them to breathe and grow. Then pat down the soil.
Add your decorative pebbles, rocks, pinecones or other items to make your terrarium look like a miniature garden world. Remember to water your plants, but not too much.
