A small sand terrarium with butterflies around.Here is a super fun sand terrarium/fairy garden you can make with your kids.

The supplies needed could be found around your house:

- colored sand (if you don't have any you could make homemade colored sand with salt)


- Bowl or jar. The bowl we used is actually their old baby bowl (repurposing that was going to get tossed out).
- butterfly (if you don't have any you can make paper ones and attach to craft wire or use any decorations you may have at home.


Making a Sand Terrarium or Fairy Garden for Kids  - supplies


  1. Fill bowl or jar with sand.
  2. Making a Sand Terrarium or Fairy Garden for Kids - blue bowl with sand, shells, and plastic diosaurs
  3. Allow your child to decorate their sand terrarium/fairy garden with anything they want. My kids added shells, rocks, plastic dinosaurs, and beads.
  4. I was trimming some succulent/plants and those trimmings would go into the green bin, but they added it to their terrarium. The cuttings will not survive, but will last a good amount of time. You could add fake plants or flowers too if you have that. For the butterflies you can wrap around a rock or just lean it against the side of the bowl.
