Hand-Made Project: Terrariums!
My favorite way to celebrate Earth Day is to bring more plants into my home. But sadly, the plants rarely make it to see Memorial Day. For all of you out there who want to fill their homes with plants, but then have trouble keeping them alive, terrariums might be the answer.
I've always loved terrariums but they were a mystery to me. How do they stay alive? What materials do I need? Why can't I make them look like the plants I see in magazines or in the Museum of Modern Art?
Check out the video below to see our terrarium projects and learn about some books that we have at the library that will help you spruce up your home garden:
The books that were mentioned in this video are:
- The New Terrarium by Tovah Martin
- 37 Houseplants Even YOU Can't Kill by Mary Kate Hogan
- Kids Garden! The Anytime, Anyplace Guide to Sowing & Growing Fun by Avery Hart and Paul Mantell
