Grab a bucket and lets go digging for worms!
We’re trying to catch worms today for two reasons. One is because it’s fun and I like worms. The other is because while we’re hunting worms we’re also digging up the dirt and getting it ready for planting!
So grab a bucket and small shovel and lets get digging!
Worms love cool, dark places so it’s best to go on a worm hunt when it’s not too hot outside or even in early morning or late afternoon.
Be patient while you’re digging. Worms don’t have eyes or ears but they can feel vibrations in the ground you make from stomping around. If they hear you, they’ll take off. So take mouse-like steps so you don’t scare them away!
When you find one put it your bucket. After collecting one or a ton, give the worms a name. If you’re with friends, give a high-five to the one who found the longest or fattest worms! After playing with them for awhile, let the worms get back into the dirt so they can help your garden grow!
Note to Adult Helpers: If you can’t find worms, try mixing up the game and look for another bug like rolly pollies. The object is to turn the chore of digging up garden dirt into a fun activity.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
