We made tehse for Bailey's Woodland Birthday party - they are a cute activity especially when combined with a nature trail scavenger hunt.
Glass Mason Jar with Lid | Potting Soil | Activated Charcoal | Small Stones, pebbles, or gravel | Sheet Moss and/or small plants | Decorations: Small rocks, shells or plastic toys | Bamboo Skewers
1 - Prep your jar by washing it in warm, soapy water and drying it. Sunflower oil rubbed on with a cloth will remove any label residue.
2 - Add a 2cm layer of pebbles to the bottom of the jar, followed by a thin layer of charcoal. The charcoal will help filter the water in your terrarium and will absorb odours. Add a 4 to 6cm layer of potting soil.
3 - Tear pieces of moss off the sheet and place them in a single layer inside the jar.
4 - Decorate as you wish with a variety of small plants, rocks, shells or plastic toys.
5- Water your terrarium lightly (until you see some moisture down in the pebble layer), and screw on the lid.
6 - Water your terrarium every few weeks.
GOOD IDEA It may be hard to fit your hand inside the jar to adjust things, so use a bamboo skewer to move the things around.
