Terrarium Making Fun!

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Two weeks ago was a nightmarish week for me because all three kids are confined at home! The older two had "suspected HFMD" because they had some ulcers in their mouths, but there were no other dots on their hands, arms, legs, feet or anywhere else.

They were also not running a fever, but regardless, the school is taking a lot of precautionary measures, so as long as they have any one of the symptoms, they would be asked to stay at home.

Those damn ulcers took an entire week to subside! Of course, the kids got very bored by the third day with nothing but colouring, writing, playing toys and watching cartoons. Luckily, I had a box full of terrarium-making items from Masons Decorations!

For as low as $25, you can purchase a DIY terrarium set that consists of 5 succulents, 2 packets of pebbles, 1 packet of terrarium soil mix, 1 glass bowl, 1 set of shovel. It will be great as a gift, or a new house project for the children!

From our above haul, we were able to make 3 different terrariums, with lots of pebbles and terrarium soil mix to spare. It could easily make us another 3 terrariums!


Making terrariums are so much easier than what I had expected it to be! I used to resort to buying ready-made terrariums in the past, but making it is another whole level of fun altogether. In just a couple of simple steps, a terrarium can be completed.

Here are the two kiddos working on putting the first layer of rocks at the bottom. The smooth texture of the rocks also gave them lots of fun in terms of sensory play.

Putting in all the decorations, after I helped them to transfer the plants into the bowl.

Ta-daa!! What do you think?

Here are all three terrariums we've made all lined up!
