How To Make a Terrarium

Make your own terrarium with this guide from our Outdoor Learning team!

Bring out your creativity in this activity by designing a landscape for your terrarium from natural materials you have foraged in the parks and items you can find around the house.

A terrarium is a self-supporting ecosystem, so it's like creating a mini environment inside a glass jar! Watch the video above or download the how to guide to get started.
