A Family Guide to Terrariums for Kids

Imagination-inspiring Projects to Grow a World in Glass

Patricia Buzo


Design, plant, and grow a world of your very own – inside a terrarium! Including 15 unique, imagination-inspiring project plans, each accompanied by full-colour photographs, kids and their grown-ups will discover how easy terrariums are to plant and grow.

With the step-by-step project instructions, the results are beautiful, inspiring and confidence-building. Making these little landscapes develops motor skills, spatial awareness and provides a wealth of sensory input. The science behind the art is included with quick and simple lessons on ecosystem functions, the water cycle and plant nutrition. With information on selecting the best terrarium container, growing materials, decorative elements, tools, and plants, readers are primed for success that lasts long after the terrarium has been built.

But for kids, its all about being active and building something cool! Plus, when the project is complete, theres a piece of living art to share with family and friends or display on a bedroom shelf.
