Wormery or Earthworm Habitat

Step 7

What better way to teach children about worms than to watch them in real life?!

The jist of the project is this: You put dirt in a jar, cover the outsides with dark paper, and wait for a couple of days. Then, you remove the paper, and the worms will have dug around in the dirt, creating tunnels your children can see. LOVE it!

Here are 2 links on how to do this. I can’t wait to do this with my children after we get back from our trip!

  1. A wormery is a fantastic addition to any garden. Not only does it reduce unecessary food waste going to landfill it also provides you with high quality compost.
    Watch your garden blossom with the help of a wormery. You can even decompose meat and bones, helping stop your bin smelling awful too!
