Joshua has always loved investigating everything around him. He has always very quickly tried to learn everything he can about what’s put in-front of him. When he was a baby, he would chuck his toys around trying to figure out exactly what it could do, and this has never changed. He now loves being outdoors and exploring the world and learning about nature. Recently, we realised just how much he has picked up as he was telling me all about how flowers grow during our recent wander around our local woods.
We have been having fun exploring and setting up our very own Worm World from Interplay. My Living World offer a range of science and nature kits for children, designed by nature experts to provide fun and informative kits.
What’s in The Kit:
A 20-Page Booklet
4 Packets of Sand (2x coloured)
Plastic Worm Housing with Lid and Feet
Within the 20-page booklet is a step-by-step guide to talk you through setting up your worms new home. Little ones will need the help of an adult for setting it all up and looking after your new worms, so it’s a great way to bond and discover together.
Setting up your worm home is very simple! Spread layers of soil and sand, alternating between the coloured sand, to create layers. Using the coloured sand will let you watch and learn how the worms will mix it all up as they move around, showing just how they move and fertilize the soil.
Once your worms are settled in their home, you need to keep them in a warm and shaded room. Never let the soil go dry and feed them dead leaves. Enjoy learning for around 4-6 weeks before you release them back into their natural habitat.
What Joshua Has Learnt
Joshua has had so much fun creating the home for his worms and making the layers of sand and soil. Since we have had Worm World, Joshua has learnt all about what worms eat, how they move and create tunnels, how they will take their leaves down into the soil as they burrow and that this is exactly how they move under the ground outside.
Joshua has also learnt all about how they help flowers grow – which is the simplest way of explaining that they fertilise soil, mix it up as they tunnel through and allow air and water to penetrate into the soil.
This Worm World kit is the perfect gift for little explorers and such a good opportunity for them to learn about the importance of worms in our world.
What do your little ones like exploring?
