I usually make these every year with the kids. However, we didn't do it this year so I used one of the five that my son has made! I used their handprints and fingerprints to make the fish and octopus. The sand at the bottom is gold glitter. I used fabric paint, and I have the kids bring in their own t-shirts. Sometimes they bring white sundresses, or shorts and t-shirts. I have made some pretty cute clothes with this idea!
This is a gel ant farm. They are much easier than a traditional ant farm. The gel is their food and water and you don't have to do anything! With the other ant farms, it is very easy to overfeed and give them too much water. Believe me! I know my ant farms! The ants come separate in a little vial. You put them in the fridge for a half hour before putting them in the farm. It slows them down....way down. Then you don't have to worry about them biting when putting them in!
