Hey Everyone!

We are rowing Truman's aunt farm this week and I am looking into buying an ant farm. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good ant farm? I looked at amazon and I read good and bad comments. I would much rather go with one that someone else has had a good experience with.:D

Thanks!

Hi Jeni,

I haven't tried it yet, but we just bought my 5 yo son an Ant Farm for his birthday. This is the one we selected:

It looked different and "cool" and I thought my son would love it. :) We're planning on trying our hand at catching our own ants as soon as gets a little warmer.

We'll be rowing Truman's Ant Farm in about 3 weeks. :)

Blessings,
Becky Jane

That's the same ant farm we have and it worked great. The only suggestion I have is to make sure you read the instructions- you're supposed to use the enclosed stick to "stab" a hole in the gel to get the ants started tunneling. Once they got started, ours tunneled all over the gel and it was cool to watch their daily progress. After a couple of weeks, the ants stopped tunneling and the novelty wore off, but it was still worth it.
