Gardening The Fun Way! You Gott See This!

This post brought to you by Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.


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:

  1. Cover the bottom with a layer of rocks
  2. Fill about 1/3 full with potting mix.  I bet some Moisture Control Potting Mix would work well for certain plants.
  3. Grab a spoon or something to plan succulents into the potting mix, adding more mix to create your landscape.
  4. 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…

What a really cute idea! I don't have a green thumb, but I'd be willing to give this a try!

I am all ready to start planting with my Grandsons this year, we are just waiting for the weather to stay warm. We have a couple of very warm days and then it's back to being very cold again, in fact the weather was calling for snow but lucky us we didn't get it. I want to plant everything we would want for a salad and also a little miniature garden for the boys to play and use their imaginations in. I bought the Miracle gro so it has a better chance of growing for us. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

How I would love to have a garden! Even a teeny one! But I've always lived in aprtments and have no land. We have a terrace, but it has a N -N/W exposure, and it only gets 15 minutes of sun in the late afternoon. You are lucky!

I planted a garden in containers. I think this would be good for the kids to do.

This sounds fun. I wish we had a garden. I'm thinking about putting a growbox on our balcony!

Where we live....I'm not able nor do I have any room for a garden. But I do have a house plant,which is the next best thing.

I so wish I had a garden - our balcony is very small and we travel so much so having even a small one is pretty difficult. Maybe someday!

I hear you MD on having little space. Please check out my review on the Earth Box. Despite the big yard you see in the back (that's only because I'm kitty sitting for my aunt and we decided it would be best here so I could tend to it), at my home I don't have space for a garden. The Earth Box is designed to allow you to have the garden you want. My basil is growing just fabulously and just yesterday one of my pepper plants flowered. Yay! Perhaps this would be an option for you.

I love fresh vegetables. I don't love the outdoor heat, weeding, spraying... This is more my gardening style.
