"The crickets felt it was their duty to warn everybody that summertime cannot last for ever. Even on the most beautiful days in the whole year – the days when summer is changing into autumn – the crickets spread the rumor of sadness and change."
―E.B. White, Charlotte's Web
"Moss" Marshmallows, Edible Terrariums and Bugs, Bugs, BUGS!
Each summer in our house, we like to have a Bug and Garden week. Though bug-catching is a stalwart standard, I always try to switch up things just a bit. Last year we made moss marshmallows for an edible terrarium activity, created a family of lady bugs and even planted a Venus fly trap! Join me today as I share our activities!
This edible terrarium activity is a project inspired by Jenn at Rook 17's terrariums. She makes the cutest little mushrooms for her Woodland Cake Terrarium version -- check it out HERE! For our project, I wanted the moss rocks to be large and flat, so I used the "smore" marshmallows.
I layered chocolate yogurt and ground pecans in my edible terrarium jars for "dirt."
Then added marshmallows and some fun miniatures that the "fairies" left behind when their gardening was complete.
