All you need for this project is a bottle, a woods, and a few creative juices.
I found five girls, ages 6-10, Starbucks frappuccino bottles, and a trail in the Erie Wildlife Refuge.
We had lots of fun looking for tiny things that would fit in the bottles.
We collected moss, tiny ferns, baby trees, sticks, pinecones, ivy… I loved seeing their creativity!
We stuck our plants into the moss and jammed the moss in the jar with a fork. These little ecosystems take care of themselves. Just don’t put them in too much sunlight or there will be too much condensation.
