What You’ll Do
If you stare at a terrarium long enough, a friendly ghost will peek out from behind one of the succulents. Well, maybe not—but Liza Fiorentinos uses the spirit of the year’s spookiest holiday to help nurture kids’ green thumbs. Parents—one per child, please—can watch kids create a terrarium before it’s packed up into a commute-friendly gift box.
Kids Create a Little Green Landscape
Using air plants, sand, and moss, kids make their very own terrarium, adding a touch of green to bedrooms or handing it off to parents as a gift.
Add Halloween-Worthy Decor
Fiorentinos provides pictures of Halloween to spark creativity, and kids can add appropriately creepy decorations into the containers the shop calls “terror-iums.”
Get in the Spirit of the Holiday
Costumes are encouraged, and Halloween candy rewards pint-sized gardeners for their hard work.
