A no-mess terrarium!

Trying to raise a child with green fingers? Get them to make a terrarium, without getting their hands dirty, pulling up weeds from the soil! Here’s an easy way to make a fuss-free terrarium, using indoor plants, which can be your child’s pet project. All you need is some free time, a pair of scissors and simple accessories!

By Kanika Suri

STEP ONE

Here’s what you and your child need to make your terrarium:

  • Any indoor plant
  • Old tin box
  • Transparent, A4 size plastic sheet (you can get one at any stationary shop)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue gun
  • Small white pebbles
  • Magnet
  • A little moss (optional)

STEP 2

Use the scissors to cut the plastic sheet at around the same size as the opening of the tin box. Then cut it into half. Stick the sheet with either a glue gun (it’s going to be hot, so be careful!) or with tape. Now, put in the pebbles and some moss.

STEP 3

Now that the pebbles and moss are ready, add the indoor plants that you have chosen. Once you’re done, stick a magnet to the back, so that you can pin it on your refrigerator. Sprinkle some water. Keep the plant moist (not wet) and make your indoor plant last!
