A little while ago I was very lucky…I actually WON something!! Go Me!! I won a wonderful DIY Terrarium Kit from The Little Green Project!
I was over the moon! I knew I had to put it together without too much delay as there was live moss inside!
So I enlisted the help of my 3 year old to put this baby together! As the stones were already in the base, he added the layer of Charcoal (this is required to help keep the mould away)…
Next we needed to rehydrate the dried moss…he loved pushing it all down into the water…the waiting for 5 minutes while it was soaking was the hard part.
Finally he was able to get his hands dirty and place this moss as a barrier layer between the charcoal and the soil.
Then, he carefully poured in the soil…
and he got to poke it around making little hills.
It was now time to tear up the live moss and place it into his terrarium.
The final layer…
Now he could place the big rocks, the mini mushrooms and then all the little rocks into their new homes.
My son went a bit crazy with the little stones, I think there were more on the floor than in the jar!
…and voila! The finished product! How great does it look?
Needless to say my son was very pleased with himself. A great project we could do together and which he is proud to show anyone who visits.
Tomorrow (Oct 9), I will put a pic on the Macaroon Kids Facebook Page of how the Terrarium looks…a month on…go check it out xx
