Planting an Open Terrarium

Here is a fun thing to do with your kids this summer. We are working on a couple of terrariums, we have one finished. This one has a dinosaur theme, if you knew my daughter you'd have no trouble figuring out why. :) There are 2  kinds of terrariums: open and enclosed. What is A Terrarium? A terrarium is a miniature landscape with living plants and even sometimes small animals like lizards or turtles. This is the best site I've found for information and directions and ideas and video how-to's.......  http://www.stormthecastle.com/terrarium/index.htm.  Since the requirements are different for different plants I'll let you go to the site for directions.
First.....decide on a theme and gather your supplies.

Add your dirt/soil and then place your plants to figure out where you want them

Now plant the plants

We added sand since we were going with a desert theme.

Add your decorations, have fun with it.
