Hi there. I thought I'd talk about this project because it lends itself to a summer project with kids. Originally I wanted each of my kids to make one of these, but we have only made one so far.
It's really easy and truly something your kids can do with little supervision.
- Glass container - you can even use a wine glass!
You just layer it in the container like you see in the image above. Well, actually, put the rocks on the bottom and then the sand.
And ta-da...you get this.
I will say the best place to get plants is not Home Depot or Lowes. Your best bet would be a special trip to a landscape center.
These require very minimal water which is perfect for someone like me who nevers remembers to water anything!
One last image...
If you try to make one of these I'd love to know how it turns out! Have fun.
