Gummy Worm Dessert

If worms live in dirt, where do gummy worms live? Make a model of a worm's home in the soil -- a model that's good enough to eat!

What You'll Need:

  • Plastic cup
  • Gummy worms
  • Ice cream
  • 4 chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
  • Plastic flowers (optional)

Step 1: Put two or three gummy worms on the bottom of a plastic cup. Cover "worms" with a scoop of your favorite flavor of ice cream.

Step 2: Top with crushed cookies and chocolate syrup to make the cup look like a pot of soil. Then feel free to decorate with additional gummy worms or plastic flowers.

Do plants breathe? The next science experiment will show you the answer.
