    The life of ants goes on pretty much unnoticed by people (unless they are in your house or picnic basket), so we don’t get to see the intricate tunnels and constructions they create. This huge ant farm allows viewers to see their ants build roads, dig tunnels, make bridges, and more. It is a tradi-tional thin rectangular habitat (13” x 9”) that comes complete with tunneling sand, connecting “antway” tube, and instruction guide. Top of the habitat includes a picnic background for fun authenticity. Add to the fun by collecting ants around your yard! (Ants not included). Your family will be amazed as you watch these tiny ants go to work! ~ Megan/Deanne

    Watch ants dig underground tunnels with this unique ant habitat. This habitat is designed to be identical to an ant's real home, as the "cross-cut" design features an oversized tunneling chamber for easy observation. The habitat stands 8.5 inches high and its base is 11 inches x 5 inches, which makes tipping over virtually impossible. Thankfully, a locking lid also makes escape impossible for the ants! The habitat comes with "easy dig" sand, a sand rod, and instructions. A voucher is also included for Harvester ants to fill the habitat. The ants are free, but you will need to pay $4.00 shipping for 25 ants within the U.S. or $5.00 shipping for Canada. Please note that ants can not be shipped to Oregon or Hawaii. The double-sided viewing area and the dome shaped design make this habitat practical and fun.

    Since 1956, children and adults have enjoyed watching ant colony activity with this classic kit. The “farm” is a clear upright rectangular frame thin enough that the activity of the ants is viewable from the outside. Ants form various tunnels through the substrate as they go about their daily routines. Frame is break-resistant and escape-proof. Harvester ants must be ordered directly from the manufacturer (for shipment in continental U.S. only) which includes a shipping fee. 9” x 14.25” x 1.5”.

    Add some multi-colored pizzazz to your ant farm with this fun ant habitat. It comes with a see-through, curved, acrylic case and different colors of sand (white, red, yellow, blue, and black). It's like an art project at first, as you get to layer the sand however you wish. Then you infuse the sand with sugar water while you send away the included coupon and wait for your ants to come in the mail. No further feeding is required, so once you add the ants you have no more responsibilities. Simply watch in amazement as the ants tunnel through the multi-colored sand, shifting it around and dragging different colors to the top. It's a sand sculpture and ant habitat all in one! A facts and instructions booklet and zoom lens are also included with the habitat, sand, and mail-in coupon for ants. Please note ants can not be shipped to Alaska or Hawaii.

    Ever wanted to manage a super-futuristic ant farm? Well, this kit includes everything you need to do just that! The ant farm habitat is about 6” high, 10” wide, 1 ½” thick, and it is filled with green gel. The gel is non-toxic and is formulated to provide all the nutrients and moisture ants need to survive, so there is no need for feeding or watering. The kit includes an order form to send for worker ants, however, please note that shipping is currently $4.00 and ants may take 3-6 weeks to arrive. When you receive your ants, simply drop them into the transparent gel and watch them start making tunnels. You and your kids will get to see how they work, clean, communicate, and live out their life (which typically lasts 1-3 months). If you wish to continue your farm when the ants die, you can order more, but you won’t need to refill the gel! A cool thing about this product is that if you have more than one Ant Farm, you can connect the containers and watch the colonies work together! This is great for those who have always wanted an ant farm but aren’t excited about the upkeep. - Jon

    A space-age habitat for ants! In 2003, NASA conducted a mission to study insect life in micro-activity conditions. This unique ant habitat is based on the technology used by NASA in the shuttle experiment. The 5 1/2"h x 6"lw x 1 1/4"d plastic habitat is filled with a special gel that not only keeps the tunnels from collapsing, but also provides the necessary food and water that the ants need to survive. This unique, self-contained environment allows you to observe your ants as they travel through the 3-D, translucent tunnels they create. A magnifying glass and extreme zoom lens is provided to help you watch every move they make! This home is ideal for 20-25 ants that you can either collect yourself or order using the enclosed order form. A detailed instruction manual provides you with instructions on using your tunnel-starting tool to help get your ants digging, where to store your habitat, special things to observe, and all sorts of fun facts about ants. So, if furry pets aren't allowed or fish sound too high-maintenance, then why not consider investing in a low-maintenance ant colony that is "out of this world"? – elise.

    Part journal, part scrapbook, part sketchbook and a thoughtful gift for the tween/teen with a lot on their minds! The spiral binding makes it lie flat, which is a lovely feature. Each page has something interesting on it, like a prompt. Sometimes you draw; other pages have you write a bit, but there is always something there to work with. This book is as appealing for a boy as for a girl. The images have a sepia quality, so it isn’t too cutesy. Here are some examples of your tasks (should you choose to accept!): Make a drawing using only letters. Invent an electronic device. Draw this dog…upside down…with your eyes closed…without lifting you pencil. Other pages have no directions. Like a blank family tree, empty jars to fill and an ant farm to design. I loved the variety of prompts so much that I was thinking about what I would draw to finish the roller coaster, make some graffiti or draw clothes on animals! If you have a reluctant writer, do a page as a non-threatening warm-up activity. Each prompt is only 1-2 pgs. Of course your artsy kids will have fun, but since it is a private thing, like a diary of sorts, those who do not fancy themselves an artist can let loose and have fun being creative. Once the book is complete, you have a keepsake – a snapshot of how your child was thinking at that time in their life. The size makes it easy to stash or take with you. 8” x 9” 160 pp, pb. ~ Sara
