Wondering what to do with all those jars you’ve been collecting?

Save your most decorative jars to create a mini terrarium with your children. Firstly place some small rocks or pebbles into the base of the jar. Fill the jar with potting mix and then top with sphagnum moss. Children can then select a piece of succulent to plant in their terrarium as well as a small toy or ornament for that mini-world effect. This time we used tiny wooden birds, however, in the past toy dinosaurs or jungle animals have worked a treat. These terrariums were made as a Mothers’ Day gift so we finished the project with a raffia bow and a luggage tag card. Minimal watering is required for succulents, making them the perfect low-maintenance indoor plant gift for busy mums!
