Well…sort of. We ordered this ant farm for the boys as a Christmas gift. I never really thought I would be the keeper of an ant farm that’s for sure. During the summer, Gabriel poked holes in about a dozen of my food, storage containers to create a little habitat for various bugs they would find…so they will love this (and it saves my Tupperware)! The ant farm world is new to me but it’s actually pretty fascinating. This is neat because it’s not sand, it’s blue gel that nourishes the ants, and makes it easier to observe them. It was technology developed by NASA and after reading up on it, I gained a new respect for ants! It’s pretty affordable too (only 14.99), we ordered the “illuminated” version which is a little more, but still not bad. You can check out the ant farm and all of the great items at the Discovery store by clicking here.
