DIY: Zen Garden

As of late, I’ve been obsessed with Zen gardens and all things calming! Having a look at the designs online, I thought I’d give making one a go. After strolling through my fave shop, Bunnings, my inspiration was found and I managed to create a makeshift Zen garden in less than 30 minutes!

If you have toddlers or young child, this will be a treat but I warn you, it could get messy!

Nonetheless, it’s great sensory stimulation and calming for both young and old!

THH Difficulty Level: 

What you’ll need:

Decorative sand

Tray table

Wooden craft pieces

– Glue gun and scissors

Rocks and shells to decorate


  1. Gather all your items.
  2. Collect your wooden pieces and arrange to create zen garden tools. You can also use chopsticks, old pens or toothpicks.
  3. Once the tools are prepared, take the tray and empty the sand onto the tray.
  4. Once complete, you can use your Zen garden! Create and be calm!
