Give your child two clear plastic glasses. Have her fill one glass halfway with soil. Then have her plant weeds or small plants in her soil glass and add a little water. Let her decorate her glass with stones or wood chips. Place a second glass on top of her soil glass and tape or glue the two glasses together to make a terrarium. Explain to her how the water evaporates then condenses and finally rains down on her plants in the self-watering terrarium.
