Inspired by this, this, this, this, and this, Luke and I put together a couple of terrariums. The one on the left houses succulents. The one on the right houses plants that like a humid environment. Both feature dinosaurs. We're going to have to do a little research to find out the proper environment for tiny plastic dinosaurs. Or I suppose we could call this an experiment. The tiny plastic dinosaurs that are housed in the wrong environment will probably become extinct. But maybe that's too cruel.
We followed the instructions in My First Nature Activity Book and in this video. We'll probably make some more. Luke enjoys mucking around in the dirt and if you're a regular reader, you know how much I enjoy little things and tiny landscapes certainly qualify. I've got a yearning for woodland creatures and ceramic mushrooms. Check out this one, belonging to the artist Ann Wood. (If you go there you might get lost for some time, looking at her lovely work. I'll wait...) We might spring for Wardian cases next time.
We have also been experimenting with the proper environments for frogs and toads. Well, for Frog and Toad, to be exact.
For instance, we're wondering if that wallpaper in the living room isn't a tad too dark:
What do you think?
