Make a Terrarium


You can plant just about any kind of seed in this terrarium. Children love to see the plants growing.
Parental supervision is recommended.

What You Need:

How To Make It

  • Plastic 2 liter soda pop bottle with cap
  • Very sharp scissors or craft knife
  • Dirt or potting soil
  • Seeds
  • Water
  • Permanent black marker
    • Remove the label from the bottle. Discard label. Save cap!
    • Wash and rinse out the bottle and cap.
    • Cut the bottle close to the bottom. I found a "line" about at the end of the label and cut there. You can cut it higher if you wish.
    • Lightly place dirt or potting soil in the base.
    • Plant a few seeds in the dirt.
    • Lightly water.
    • Put the cap on the bottle.
    • Cover the base with the top of the bottle. You will have to fiddle with it a bit to fit back inside the base.
    • Place in a sunny spot and watch for your seeds to grow.
    • When the plants are ready, repot them or plant them in your garden.
    • Enjoy!
