Let's play with dirt... Let's make TERRARIUM!

A terrarium is a collection of small plants growing in a transparent, sealed container. As early as 500 BC, plants were kept under bell-shaped glass jars for exhibit. But the terrarium in its modern form was invented by accident in 1827 by Nathaniel Ward, a London doctor. 

I didn't know about these until I read it in a blog post here.

If you want to create your own, it isn’t hard to do. You can get some plants from a local nursery or as close as your own mini-garden!

Simple Materials:
  • Glass container (with or without a lid)
  • Small decorative pebbles 
  • Potting soil
  • Live Moss
  • Terrarium plants (small shade loving plants)
  • Potting shovel
  • Water
