The kids found some worms books to read while waiting for the other kids to check in.
We read Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin - it was very informative! Spider put his 2 cents in too.

Craft Time: Worm Paper Holders
Thank you to Natalie, one of our teen volunteers who helped with this program.
Some finished crafts:
As kids finished their crafts, they headed over to another table for some real worm fun! Every single worm (27) went home with kids to happy homes, gardens, and house plants.
Thank you to our other teen volunteer, Cassie, who helped with worm fun and safety!
