A unique party favor for a forest of one’s own – The terrarium kit

Terrarium kids!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.~Delilah

    So cute! Kind of pricey for a party favor, though, but a cute idea for a present, or maybe a favor if you are just having one or two other kids?
