Happiness is creating with your child,doing something you have wanted to do for a LONG time......
...AND......even relating it back to your child's American Girl Doll adventure.
You see Julie has a terrarium in her room too.
Noli and I have had many chats about what her own terrarium would be like.
We checked a few books out of the library for prep...and just jumped in.
You will need:
* A glass container (I thrifted this gold fish bowl.)
* Assorted small plants
* Tiny pebbles
* Potting soil (not shown)
* Little "friends" to make it a sort of "living" dollhouse.
...and ofcourse Mommy's little helper!
I did omit one ingredient.
After filling the clean glass container with pebbles I realized I forgot to get charcoal for the next layer. So....I just added the potting soil. We'll see how important that ingredient was......
We used a spoon to add the plants,and added the little 70's girl.
There is no top to close off our terrarium and make it "rain".....so we will happily water ours with tiny drops of water.
Someone was pretty pleased and excited!
Perhaps I should have added some moss for her to sit on.I am feeling guilty that her little skirt has to sit on dirt.
What would you plant in your terrarium?
Did you have one as a child?
