What is a terrarium?

water flow in the terrariumA terrarium is tiny garden enclosed within a sealed glass container. Terrariums are lots of fun to make, and are also a great way to teach kids about the water cycle, as they demonstrate evaporation, condensation and precipitation. Because the water in a terrarium is trapped inside the container, terrariums can live for years without ever being watered!

Terrarium’s are made from layers of sand, stones, gravel and soil, with a few extra ingredients mixed in, which help the soil breath, and the water move up and down the water table. Plants are then planted in the tiny world and moss is added. Finally, children can choose¬†tiny decorations to live in their gardens (like fairies and dinosaurs!) making this a fun, wholesome and beautiful living craft project!
