Well, after to unexpected April Blizzards here in Nebraska, I think Spring has finally sprung. And I have gardening fever. But in my area of the country I still have to wait awhile for digging in to our soil outside. But that doesn’t mean I can’t start other simple and fun garden projects. Especially the ones that get my three boys involved.
I found out about Miracle-Gro’s The Gro Project a few days ago and came across the most amazing and simple project. I am going to do with my boys next weekend. It is called Toyrarium.
Thank you Mircle-Gro for the use of your Toyrarium photo from your great Facebook The Gro Project page.
I will share personal photos next week of our creative adventure.
All you need is a fish bowl or other glass container, some cactus or other succulents, Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix, Rocks, a spoon and some extra plastic toys or figures for your children’s room. Okay, doesn’t like sound like fun? We are going to have a blast. I can’t wait to see how our Toyrarium will turn out.
So all you need to do is:
1) Get a fish fish bowl or other glass container (I love to repurpose!)
2) Add some Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix in the bottle of the bowl or container.
3) Then plant your cactus or other plants by using a spoon.
4) Last have you children personalize the project with some of their small toys.
I better make sure to buy some indoor Shake’n Feed All Purpose Plant Food to supplement our so to be fun indoor cactus garden. Or maybe I should check out the LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit? I will have to read up about the differences and see what will be the best.
If you are a Pinterest nut like I am, you have to check out the Miracle-Gro Pinterest page. It is a wonderful way to share your gardening experiences…inside and out. Plus, it can lead to inspirations from others to get your gardening skills up to snuff and enjoy other gardening stories.
