DIY Terrariums for Kids


There’s just something about terrariums that I just love. With Earth Day being this week, the kiddos and I decided to make some super fun terrariums to have around the house. I let them pick their decorations of choice and the kids just loved it. Visit CBC Parents to get the instructions on how we made this fun craftivity. Here are just a few pics of my favourites….



I bet you can guess which kid made which terrarium, lol!
