How to Make a Toyarium

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.
Terrariums are all over the place right now, magazines, Pinterest, everywhere.  So, when Miracle-Gro offered to sponsor this post, I figured it was the perfect time to make my own.  Parker and I worked together and had fun making our own Gro Project, Toyarium.  You may be thinking what's a Toyarium?  Simple...
Toyarium = Terrarium + Toys
What you'll need to make your own Toyarium:  Somewhat large glass container, small rocks, Moisture Control Potting Mix, succulents, a spoon, small toys and other decorations.
The larger the container the better and the easier it is to plant your succulents.

1.  Layer the bottom of the container with small rocks.
2.  Fill container with Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix about a third of the way up.
3.  Plant your succulents in the potting mix, using your spoon.  We used a yellow cactus and a coppertone succulent.
4.  Add toys or small figurines to stage your scene.  We went with a Jurassic Park theme and chose dinosaurs.  We also added a couple rocks to add to our scene.

5.  Use a spray bottle to moisten the soil and only water when it gets very dry.

I think this would be a perfect centerpiece for a dinosaur themed party!
My favorite Miracle-Gro product is the Watering Can Singles All Purpose Plant Food.  They come in indvidual packets and you just add to a gallon of water, for your indoor and outdoor plants.  Makes it very easy since everything is already pre-measured.  A couple other Miracle-Gro favorites are the LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit and the Shake’n Feed All Purpose Plant Food.  Miracle-Gro makes it easy to feed and water plants at the same time.
