DIY Terrarium for kids is a fun craft for little hands. Small figurines and faux succulents makes this a fun home decor piece for their room.
TERRARIUM FOR KIDS
My kids are always wanting to make fun things for their rooms and these faux terrariums are so fun and can be personalized for any kids room! My middle son loves his dinosaurs and my daughter is into princesses and unicorns which is why we created these two versions. My oldest son after the fact decided he wanted a dragon version and his is just as fun!
WHAT MAKES THESE TERRARIUM GREAT FOR KIDS?
These terrariums are great for kids rooms because:
- Faux Succulents: while I love a real terrarium with live succulents we decided to use Faux succulents for our kids terrariums. This allows this craft to be a “make it and forget it” craft which is great for kids. No need to water or deal with real dirt.
- Plastic Fish Bowls: because this is going in a kids room we wanted it to be as safe as possible. If it gets knocked over I didn’t want glass to shatter all over their rooms.
- Personalize it!: you can make each fish bowl to match any color scheme or any theme, making this a great craft for all ages
