Mini Terrariums

I made these with my son Dan in lockdown and some of them are still alive and healthy!

To make some terrariums you will need:

  • Glass jars with lids
  • sand and/or gravel (optional)
  • earth
  • moss
  • pebbles, twigs, etc for decoration
  • water spray bottle (or just water)

Put in the sand or gravel first if you them, then the earth, then moss and decorate with pebbles and twigs if you like. Spray or sprinkle some water over the moss and put the lid on the jar. Put the terrariums somewhere you can enjoy them!

To care for the terrarium, occasionally open the jar and add fresh water if needed.

Make your own medicine jars!

I made these jars to help make taking medicines easier and more enjoyable 🙂

They are great as have quite a lot of space and it’s easy to see what’s inside. If you live with other people you can have your own jars so the medicines don’t get mixed up and you can put them somewhere where they are easy to see so you don’t forget to take the medicine and they are decorative so nice to look at!

How to make some medicine jars

You will need:

  • Clean jars (if it’s hard to get the labels off, you can try soaking them in water and/or boiling them). if you have a few, choose which ones best fit the shape of the medicine packets and feel nice to open and close.
  • pens that can write on glass

Then just draw nice patterns or a picture on the jar and fill with your medicine!

Gold homemade pen box

I made this from an ice cream box and some stickers I had at home, the gold glitter sticker was years old, but happily still sticky 🙂
It is the perfect size for my labelling pens and some card labels!

Make your own storage boxes!

All you need is:

  • a clean, empty ice cream box (or similar)
  • stickers, permanent marker pens or masking for decoration
