The start of the school year means once again, the hunt for creative party favors and teacher gifts begins. Well we’ve brought you cookies in a jar, dreidels in a jar, and pickles in a jar. Now we’ve got a forest in a jar– made by your very own kid.
The Terrarium Kit from the Acme Party Box company is a sweet way to bring the outside in. The kid includes everything you need to make one sweet little terrarium– except the soil and plants, although they include a guide with helpful suggestions so you don’t end up with a bouquet of poison ivy.
Add in the soft tuft of moss, pebbles, labels, and adorable vintage German animal and mushroom figurines, and you’ve got a beautiful and very original party favor, teacher gift, or hostess gift.
You can buy Terrarium Kits individually, or save $24 on a Party Kit of twelve. Add some cupcakes decorated like toadstools, and you’re all set for a magical party. Just don’t invite those creepy lawn gnomes.
