Step 1

Head outside and collect some moss, soil, rocks and/or sand. Imagine what layers you would like to see in your garden jar.

Step 2

Collect a jar, vase or clear containers. It's best if you can fit your hand through the opening that way you reach in to build your garden.

Step 3

Place some dirt and rocks on the bottom of your jar. You can make a funnel out of paper to help pour in the sand. Next, add a layer of moss. What else would you like to add to your garden jar? You can add a succulent plant, an animal figure, a crystal or a gem. With a little imagination a simple jar can become a garden. What a wonderful way to bring a little bit of the outdoors inside!

Remember there is no right or wrong way to make a nature craft, so have fun!
