I guess we just have to accept it, there’s more to life than insects! It’s not easy to admit it, but there are lots of other interesting creastures out there that are easy to keep, fun to watch and educational too. So perhaps it’s about time we dipped into the world of amphibians, crustaceans, worms and plants to see what sort of gifts you can get for your kids.

Wonderful Worm Farm

Worm FarmEven the great Charles Darwin himself was fascinated by worms. In fact it was he who realised their importance in keeping our soil in good condition. He noted how they drew dead leaves down into their burrows, so promoting decomposition. He recorded their activities in his garden over several decades so he really knew his worms. They’re also a lot more interesting to watch than you might imagine. With this colorful worm farm you can find out what interested the Great Man so much!

Grow Your Own Frog Kit

Live Frog Kit
