Terrariums have become really popular recently, with classes being offered and lots of stores selling them. I wanted to try a kid version. It was a lot of fun to make, Syd loves it, and we use it to tell stories at night! Heres how we did it:
Start with a large clear jar, you can use an empty food container or buy one. You will also need an assortment of fake flowers and greens, floral foam, dry beans for the dirt and rocks, little critters to live in your fantasy land, and glow in the dark paint.
Add a few blocks of floral foam to the bottom of the jar.
Now add the beans, and plants.
Using the glow in the dark paint, paint your creatures and add random drops onto the beans and plants in your terrarium.
Now add your creatures, and enjoy!
