A terrarium is a miniature garden in a simulated natural environment. The Grow N’ Glow Terrarium is a complete kit for helping kids to create their very own miniature eco-system. It’s so easy! You just assemble, decorate, water and watch it grow! It’s a fun way to teach kids about botany, eco-systems and the life cycle of plants. Kids love to see how things work and especially how the magic of seeds, soil, sun and water will blossom into green plants! Start by mixing ¼ cup of water to your potting soil. Squish the bag until it clumps together like clay, adding more water, a little at a time as needed. If your soil is too wet, press a paper towel onto the surface to remove any excess moisture.
This is a great lesson in cause-and-effect, responsible stewardship, and delayed gratification since the terrarium needs to be misted each day for the seeds to sprout and grow. Like keeping a pet, the plants will only thrive if they’re given water each day – but no worries – if they forget to water it, they learn the importance of water to the life cycle! And when they do water it, the seeds begin to shoot up in three to four days.
Creativity for Kids Grow N’ Glow Terrarium is fun for both boys and girls – all year long! Kids will experience the accomplishment of growing their own little habitat. The Grow N’ Glow Terrarium is the perfect science, art/craft activity.
