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 planter 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.
