DIY Kids Terrarium

One of the items at the top of our Summer Bucket List from this past summer was planting an herb garden on our front porch. Not only did we check that one off our list, but we even managed to (mostly) keep them alive all summer long. I loved having fresh herbs, but I also loved how much the kids loved taking care of the plants. In addition to our little garden, we planted several pots full of plants and flowers, including our beloved tropical palm, Ziggy (named after Ziggy Marley, of course). We let most of them go now that the weather has turned cold (except Ziggy), but I thought it would be super fun to have the kids make an indoor terrarium. I have fond memories of making them during my Michigan summers with family, and I think our kiddos would love it too.

There are so many cute options out there, though, that I'm having trouble deciding in which direction we want to go. What do you think?!

These are some great ideas. Must give the ornament terrarium a try this year. We make a fairy garden in a low, wide pot. We made a tiny house and furniture from items collected on our nature walks. The botanical garden's train display sparked that interest in the bug.

I love it, Margaret! We did something similar last year -- LOTS of moss involved!

I love these ideas. We don't have much growing outside our house yet, so I would love to add some green inside!
