Air Plant with Layered Sand and Glitter

I enjoy planting and especially decorating the home with indoor plants. My toddler asked how come he doesn't have a planter of his own creation, so I thought this would be a fun mess free little planer he could make. The outcome turned out beautifully, it also adds a nice touch of color from the colored sand and mixture of glitter!

All of the supplies used for this project were what we already had at home:
The colored sand was extra from a necklace sand set, you can use regular sand from the beach. The glass jar was from yogurt packaging. The air plant, I already had at home. They are easy to grow and require little maintenance. We also had a mixture of glitter.

Total Time: 15 minutes



  1. Have your child pour sand into a jar. If using colored sand add in layers.
  2. Optional - Pour in layers of glitter.
  3. Optional - Mix the glitter until your child is happy with their creation.
  4. Add an air plant to the jar and it's ready to display.
