A terrarium is a natural delight that can be enjoyed even in the smallest apartment. These miniature gardens make magic for kids who want a chance to plant but possibly don’t have the outdoor space to do so. They also brighten a room and give it a breath of fresh air.
1 large glass container (I recycled a vase from an old flower arrangement)
Sand (you can even use colored sand for another element of fun)
Large rocks (easily purchased at Dollar Tree or found in nature)
Add a layer of sand to your terrarium container. Use large rocks as your next layer and then top those with smaller stones. Top with a layer of dirt and then plant in your succulents.
Store in an area with access to full sunlight. Water as needed.
This terrarium also makes for a wonderful gift. The one pictured is now thriving in my son’s Pre-K classroom.
