woodland terrarium

Our Daisy Lid jars are not just for drinking, but are the perfect container for a Woodland Party favour. I made these for both our For Good Times Book Chapter 8 and for Bailey's 5th Woodland Party. They are really easy to make, in fact you could have the kids at the party make them themselves - and make for great original gifts for kids too.

IN GOOD COMPANY Mason Jar and Daisy Lid R20 each
TOYS 'R US Schleich Toys


MATERIALS Glass Mason Jar with Lid | Potting Soil | Activated Charcoal | Small Stones, pebbles, or gravel | Sheet Moss and/or small plants | Decorations: Small rocks, shells or plastic toys | Bamboo Skewers

1 - Prep your jar by washing it in warm, soapy water and drying it. Sunflower oil rubbed on with a cloth will remove any label residue. 2 - Add a 2cm layer of pebbles to the bottom of the jar, followed by a thin layer of charcoal. The charcoal will help filter the water in your terrarium and will absorb odours. Add a 4 to 6cm layer of potting soil. 3- Tear pieces of moss off the sheet and place them in a single layer inside the jar. 4 - Decorate as you wish with a variety of small plants, rocks, shells or plastic toys. 5- Water your terrarium lightly (until you see some moisture down in the pebble layer), and screw on the lid. 6 - Water your terrarium every few weeks.

GOOD IDEA It may be hard to fit your hand inside the jar to adjust things, so use a bamboo skewer to move the things around.
