Oh Jane, how wonderful! I love this simple compost project-a marvelous way to engage children in nature. They are learning so much and having oodles of fun at the same time-a perfect combination. Thank you for taking the time to share. What you are gifting thses children is precious. You fill my heart with joy.
We are off on our bikes for the first time this year. Finally the snow is melting, there is still a little snow on the ground but we're itching to get on our bikes while the sun is out.
Here are the follow-up pictures from the worm event. The top picture shows the girls getting their soil in the plastic containers. They also each received 2 worms + banana peels and coffee grounds to start a compost pile. The next picture shows the girls in the Nature Center of the Arboretum looking at fossils. Then, the next picture is of my 6-yr old granddaughter reading a sign describing the tree in front of her - (after the worm class, the girls wanted to explore the Arboretum.) I have taken there numerous times and they love it! The hole in the next picture is what the girls dug in our backyard for my compost pile; the class on worms inspired me to start this. Finally, the two older girls had fun trying to cross the stream that runs through the Arboretum. I was so happy that neither one fell in!!!
Marghanita, thank you so much for your positive comments. I really appreciate your post!
Good Morning Jane. How wonderful!! I can't think of a better way to get kids excited about worms and the huge benefits they provide to the circle of life.....what lucky children. I would love to hear how it went. This is exactly the kind of event that we need to be doing more of. Love, love, love it!!! Thank you so much for sharing.
YOU ARE THE REVOLUTION!!!!!
