The Toyrarium Gro-Project : Fun Project for the Family

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.

There are two activities that inspire me in summer time, the beach and hanging out in the garden. Though the sun is a scorcher down here in Florida, I have chosen my time when to do gardening and it is always fun and relaxing. When I am out in the yard, I will never run out of garden inspiration because Miracle-Gro has tons of ideas for fun garden projects.

For today, I would like to share a very interesting project that I saw from the The Gro Project. If you have boys in the house, they will surely enjoy this project as well so; make this project a family activity for the day.
Toyrarium Project by Miracle Gro
This is really easy to do. Just gather all those materials listed above and follow these 5 steps.
1. Cover the bottom of the container with a layer of rocks.
2. Fill it about 1/3 full with potting mix.
3. Use the spoon to plant succulents in the potting mix, adding more mix to create your landscape.
4. Set the scene with your toys. Careful not to overwater! Use a spritzer to moisten only when it gets very dry in there.
5. (That's it!) Just add a little imagination and watch it come to life.

This summer, make sure that your children have lots of activities to do and this toyrarium is interesting, educational and fun project to do.

  1. That looks like great fun for a child to get involved in--I think even I could get that one accomplished--of course no toys here--maybe I could steal one of Baby's?

  2. A great way for the family to spend some quality time together.

  3. I really love this idea! I think it is a great project to do with children.

  4. This is so cool. I want to do with my son!

  5. We do toyariums, it is such a great way to get kids into gardening. We swap toys in ours weekly to keep it interesting.

  6. This is something I may be able to do a little easier, and my son would love this!!
