Finger Puppets

Things you need:
Cotton wool ball or tissue
7 1/2cm x 7 1/2cm flesh colour material
Piece of material 4cm x 6cm of a plain design
Felt tip pens or crayons
Scraps of fabric, lace, paper, wool and buttons
Scissors glue and string

Steps
Wrap the flesh piece or material over the cotton wool ball or tissue wadded up and tie with your piece of string.
Glue the 4cm x 6cm piece of material around the flesh colour material where it is tied with the string. Make sure this is tight enough to stay on your finger. This will make the body of your puppet.
Draw a face on the puppet using felt tip pens or crayons. Use the wool to glue on hair and glue on details with the scraps of lace paper fabric wool and buttons for eyes and maybe a cloak / hat, etc.

Make your own Wormery

Things you need:
2 Plastic bottles one must be smaller than the other
Small bag of horticultural sand
Peat free compost
Scissors
Lombrices (a quick dig in the garden should find some)

Steps
Make some drainage hole in the bottom of the large bottle and then cut the top off (an old plastic pop bottle is ideal).
Fill the smaller bottle with cold water and place in side the large bottle. You may need some help here as you have to fill the gap between the two bottles with alternate layers of sand and compost.
Sprinkle water on the layers between the bottles until moist and then add your worms.
Now leave the worms somewhere dark and cool for a few days then take them out and see what the worms have been up to!
