My Terrarium

child tending terrariums

What I like about my terrariums are that I can make more homes for other animals and I have fun making terrariums.

This is how I make them: first, I put some dirt in a plastic container. Then I put the moss in on top and if I can I’ll find some rocks and wood to put in because pill bugs like rotten wood, I think. I find the moss in the alley. There’s moss growing near the big church.

My two terrariums have three different kinds of bugs. One of the terrariums only has pill bugs and centipedes. The other has some centipedes, pillbugs, and one caterpillar.

I take care of my caterpillar. I put a cotton ball soaked in sugar water so the caterpillar can drink the sugar water. And I’m seeing how the mustard greens are doing with the caterpillar, if the caterpillar likes the mustard greens.

Every week or every day I water the terrariums. Sometimes if I put too much water in, I realize that it might sink the bugs or drown them so I take all the bugs out of the terrarium.

I think that all of the kids should be able to make terrariums. Just follow my instructions and that might teach you how to make your own terrarium.
