The sun is shining and the weather is beautiful, so the girls and I have been trying to do more projects and activities outside each day. We’ve planted seeds and enjoy letting the chickens roam the yard. But finding fun activities that teach lessons of sustainability is always something I’m looking for.
Miracle-Gro is currently challenging people to create their own fun garden projects so they can inspire kids to become future gardeners!
I was unable to find smalls succulents after visiting 3 places, so we settled on some ground cover plants that were small enough to fit in the glass bowls they chose at the Dollar Tree. They’ll probably overgrow the terrariums before long, but we still get the lesson 🙂
Putting together the Toyrariums was very easy.
- We popped the plants out of the container and loosened the soil.
- Then we added some extra soil to the container and watered the plant. You can use what you have on hand or something like Moisture Control Potting Mix.
- After that, the girls added some plastic toys, also from the Dollar Tree to finish off their Toyrarium.
It maybe took us 10 minutes to put these together, but the lesson will be ongoing. I have told the girls they are responsible for keeping their plants watered. I’ll definitely have to remind Kaylee, but Zoë is becoming more responsible, so I thought this was a great thing for her.
