I think my kids excited faces in the picture to above completely says it all! Science can be extremely fun especially when it comes to raising your own worm farm! An adventure this will be because we plan on keeping one for as long as we can. It’ll be fantastic way for my children to learn all about worms, composting, the cycle of life and death, and much more along the way.
We are looking forward to reaping the benefits of having a worm farm very much. We think it’s so brilliant how they can turn fruit and vegetable scraps into great soil for gardening or for use for the house plants. And the kids love their first kind of pet too! This mom totally doesn’t get squeamish about worms because growing up I’d use them often when fishing with my family.
How about some Worm trivia!
Did you know that Earth worms have no lungs or gills? They breathe through their skin. Eggs are laid in a cuff-like structure called the clitellum. Each earth worm segment or annulus except the first and last has four pairs of tiny bristles called setae. Earthworms range in size from 1 millimeter to 3 meters long!
