Cookie Jars and Other Containers for Terrariums for Kids

Here are some containers I have found at amazon.com.

A couple of rules of thumb are to find something with a metal or non-glass lid for safer handling. And try to find something with a pretty big mouth or opening so it is easy for the child to reach in there when making it or when maintaining it.

They have quite a large selection and to learn more you roll over the item or the text. I also have put a search box at the bottom of this page if you want to search Amazon directly.
