Garden Project for Kids: Make a Toyrarium

Using instructions from The Gro Project, we made our own toyarium. Here’s what you’ll need:

Put together your toyrarium following the directions from The Gro Project on Miracle-Gro’s Facebook page.

We used a clear plastic container, but you could also use a glass fish bowl or something similar. Because my son was going to be playing with it both outside and inside, I chose plastic over glass. I also opted not to include a cactus {even though Aiden thought they looked really cool} just to be on the safe side.

Aiden added the potting mix to the top of the rocks. He gathered some friends and props to play in the dirt.

We planted the plants in our toyrarium and added some water.

Then, Aiden got to work adding toys to the scene. The dragon, robot, and lion were chosen first. A ladder and water feature were also essential to the story.

Aiden loved every step of this garden project – from choosing the rocks to adding the dirt and plants to playing with the whole set up and, of course, spraying everything with water.
