Build a Moss Garden

Here in Seattle, we've got an abundance of moss everywhere. From the cracks in the sidewalks to the rooftops, this is a moss appreciation activity that is great for toddlers.

You will need: moss, soil, shallow dish, strainer, small rocks, shells, pieces of wood and a spray bottle
1. Collect a piece of moss from a variety of places so you don't deplete one area and you have an assortment.
2. Sift soil into the bottom of your dish
3. Arrange moss and other elements into a special garden design
4. Use a spray bottle often to keep it moist

5. Marvel at the delicate diversity.
