Fresh Finds: Etsy Container Gardens Your Kids Will Love

You may remember this Valentine roundup featuring some super sweet ideas from dandee.  Well, recently I took a peek at the site’s Etsy shop and was delighted to find “Spring in a Can”.  I love the modern (yet cozy) aesthetic almost as much as I love the clever idea.  This is just what I need to remind me that spring is on the way and I know C will be fascinated by the growing greenery.  Read more for a few more indoor growing activities the kids will love.

This DIY Moss Terrarium Kit from Miss Mossy seems like the perfect rainy day activity.

If you’re feeling adventurous, be sure to check out the Edible Flower Seed Starting Kits from Bottlecrop.  Flowers that you grow and then eat – what kid won’t think that’s cool?  Of course there’s probably no way you’ll actually get them to taste it but the idea will be totally intriguing.
Last on the list are these Mini Terrariums from Tortoise Loves Donkey – because kids love really, really small things.
