I love to watch The Chew everyday and I am totally smitten with Michael Symon. I always have it PVR’d, so not to miss an episode. Ken has to endure listening to me go on and on about Michael. For the most part I don’t think he really minds as they have some great ideas and delicious food. Amber pops in once in a while and watches to. What she does like is Clinton’s Craft Corner (you have to sing it and do jazz hands). Anyway one day she say the bunch of them making little terrariums and she really wanted to make one. I had bought the jars that you see below in a case to make pickles in and they have become very handy for so many things. They are a nice big size for poppycock or cookie mix or a terrarium. First you start off with some rocks, nice ones if you have them. Then Clinton suggested charcoal if you are going to seal the jar to keep mold away. Then a nice layer of potting soil and the plant of your choosing. Amber thought the hens and chicks were cool so we went with them. They may not be the best choice as they don’t like it too moist so we are keeping the lid off for most of the time. If you go to your local greenhouse I am sure they can suggest a bunch of plants that would work well in a terrarium setting. This is a fun and easy craft for kids to do and then they can watch it grow and maintain it. Try this one today!!
