Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Supplies
Three jars (but its good with more or less. I only had one jar)
A block of wood (thick enough for staple or screw)
screws if you have a drill and not a staple gun
zip lock bag
Dremel or sand paper (optional)
Drill or staple gun
Step 2: Cut the Wood
Use the Dremel or sandpaper to sand the block into the shape you would like but make sure you have room for the jars. I did not but it would make it look better maybe. And you could use wood stain!!
Step 3: Secure the Jars
Use staple gun or drill to secure the tops on the wood. Use many screws or staples to secure the top
Step 4: Make the Foil Cup
Mold the foil onto a cup to hold the soil. Make flaps to be able to secure the cup on.
Step 5: Secure the Cup and Soil It
Staple or glue the foil cup in. You could use the drill. Then put soil in the cup, sadly i didn't get a good picture of the securing part of this step.
Step 6: The Funnel to Water the Plants
On your zip lock bag cut the smallest hole on the edge to water the plants. When watering pinch hole when you take the top off for a brief amount of time.
Step 7: And Thats About It
And there you have it a small greenhouse for your spices. Post your pictures if you make this!!!
