glass jars, stones and plants for a terrarium
Even though it has rained the last couple days, it hasn't rained enough to wash away all the snow. That is a major bummer for me because I am so ready to bury my hands in the dirt and get started on my planting of gorgeous flowers and necessary garden edibles.

I will have to settle for Springtime terrariums until the snow is all gone, but actually, it will be a pleasant way to pass the time until I can get my hands mucky. If you don't have quite the green thumb that you would like to have, a terrarium that requires less frequent watering is best for you. You'll need a glass jar or vase, aquarium sand and stone, and potting soil and plants.

Homemade indoor terrariums are a great way to teach kids about taking care of plants and the necessary steps to make a new home for plants. They can make their own terrariums and give all their plastic dinosaurs and dolls a new home too.
