This is a great fun activity and really easy to do. We used different species of moss in ours but you could use any small plants such as sedums and alpines that don’t grow too big. Once made just pop it on a sunny windowsill and watch it change and grow. It is also a great way to learn and watch the water cycle in action keeping your mini ecosystem alive and thriving.
