Ant Home

Materials: one-gallon jar or large peanut butter jar, soil and an anthill, black

1. Fill a one-gallon far with soil. Find an anthill and put as many of the ants and
as much of the surrounding debris in the jar as you can collect.

2. Place some cotton over the dirt and pour a little water in the ant jar every
several days.

3. Put the lid with small holes in it back on the jar and cover the entire jar with black
paper. The ants will make tunnels and can be observed by the Cubs.
