“Having kids is one of the best things in the world. Of course kids do tend to like the most disgusting things, like worms. Most kids have a fascination with worms for some reason and always like to play with them. You may not feel like going outside and playing with worms with your kids but you can do something they will love just as much and that is set up a kids worm farm.
Setting up Your Worm Farm
Do not worry because it takes no time at all and you will not have to get that dirty. With just a few easy steps you can have your own worm farm for you and your kids. The kids can help out and enjoy the process too because there is nothing dangerous you have to use. Do not even think about putting any worms in a container before preparing them.
For each container you use you will need to have holes strategically drilled into the bottom and sides. It is best to keep the holes drilled in evenly especially in the bottom to ensure proper drainage. Once you have done this you can start working on the bedding which is what the worms will actually be living in inside the containers. They do not like light so make sure there is lots of material used, anything from cardboard to dried leaves.
Add in some garden soil and then dampen the mixture before putting the worms in. Now you have finished prepping the containers and all you need is your worms. The kids are going to love watching the worms squiggle around through the containers. You may even want to let the kids give them each names as they put them in just for an extra bit of fun, even though you are obviously going to get them mixed up and forget soon after.
Feeding The Worms
Never overfeed the worms as this can cause them to die and likely will cause odor problems in the containers as well, from rotting food. Worms suck on moist wastes to get their food and create compost but the food should always be broken up into smaller pieces rather than thrown in whole. Your kids are going to love feeding the worms and will feel like they are their little pets. It is so easy to get a worm farm started up and you can have a great time bonding with your kids and letting them have fun.”
