We did a couple of fun projects today. First, we made a terrarium! It was so much fun and so easy. We took a large jar and filled it with pebbles, activated carbon, sphagnum moss and potting soil. Then we went outside and dug up some moss, a stick, rocks and birch bark. We added these along with a couple of fairies to the terrarium. We watered it well and that's it, it should be pretty self-contained.
Next, we planted potatoes indoors. We bought some seed potatoes(but I'm sure you could use some old potatoes you have hanging around), cut them up so each piece had at least one eye, and planted them in a large pot. Hopefully we'll get some potatoes in 2 or 3 months! Thanks to 5 orange potatoes for the potato idea!
