Moss Terrariums

This years' mother's day project was early.  I couldn't resist.  It was fun to get these little (spice-rack) bottles together.  I'm glad I was early too.  We have been working on getting the soil to dry.  The initial watering was too much, now a cloud forms in the bottle.  There is less condensation in the bottles every day now.

The instruction for the moss garden can be found here.

We used different layers of soil and sand, but the watering changed the colours.  So hopefully, once they are dried enough, the different layers will be visible again.  They were quite pretty.

The bottles will be decorated to coordinate with the students' cards and maybe we will  make a gift baggie for them.

Now if the moms like them as much as the kids, they will be a hit!
