I was snooping around and ran into this fabulous fun gardening idea. It is so much fun it almost doesn’t seem like it should be in the same category as gardening. Don’t get me wrong, I love to garden, but it’s just not for everyone. Until now that is!
There’s this fun gardening craft called Toyrarium on the growing spot! There’s a few others too, but this is the one that I have to share with you, it’s just so much fun! Not to mention it’s super easy, I think it’s going to be something my children and I get together and do over the weekend.
I’m going to start out with a super fun, picture to show you what a Toyraium is. Then I will post the four super easy directions…. I know right, there is only four direction! Oh, I cannot wait to share this with you, but even more important I cannot wait for you to swing by the fun garden projects!
What you need to get your Toyrarium started:
Next are the super easy directions:
- Cover the bottom with a layer of rocks
- Fill about 1/3 full with potting mix. I bet some Moisture Control Potting Mix would work well for certain plants.
- Grab a spoon or something to plan succulents into the potting mix, adding more mix to create your landscape.
- Grab some fun toys, and set them up. Be very careful not to over water. Use a spritzer to moisten only when it gets very dry.
You’re all done, sit back and enjoy!
Isn’t it so much fun, and my mouth hit the floor when I realised how easy and fun gardening could be for my children. So they might not like to get out there with mom every single day, but they are going to love making and caring for their new Toyrarium.
I have to say Miracle-Grow really did it, they have taken gardening and made it fun for everyone. Even my kids are going to love it! I don’t think they are going to realize they are gardening until I spill the beans to them, but oh well I know they’re going to love it and that is what matter. I’m sure we will end up doing the other great gardening ideas too, Swing by and check out The Gro Project for yourself, there is several super fun ideas for you to do with your kids, or even by yourself…
