How to Make a Terrarium with Kids
Let’s get started!
What you need:
Glass jars or containers
First, with your clean and dry container add a layer of the potting soil in the lid Try to keep just enough to cover the lid and allow your plants to thrive in their new terrarium. Add some water to moisten your soil. If you are adding more than one plant, be sure to plant the biggest one first.
Next place in small stones, or maybe some moss or sand to cover up the soil if you want to. You can find a wide variety of moss and stones at stores like Dollar Tree and Amazon. You can even add smaller plants and flowers to mix it up. Adding natural elements to your terrarium will make it even more serene.
Lastly, assemble your terrarium by securing the jar onto the lid. Make sure you give your terrarium plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. The best part about the terrarium is how low maintenance it is. Check your soil moisture every few weeks to make sure your terrarium is thriving.
