Making a native plant terrarium

We got to take advantage of Granny's expertise as she took L out into the woods to collect some native plants for our terrarium.

They then brought everything home and we started with putting a layer of pebbles on the bottom of the jar. We then added a thin layer of activated charcoal we got from the pet store.

Then some Sphagnum or Spanish moss and a nice thick layer of soil from the garden.

We dug small holes in the dirt and added our plants. L also put in a shell, some stones and a little sleeping fairy I made from Fimo.


I love how this turned out and it was so easy to make. Check out my next post where I'll write about how we used this terrarium to learn about the water cycle.
