Cut the top off the bottle and use the drawing pin to pierce a few small holes on the bottom and along the sides.
Place the dirt, shredded newspaper and leaves into the bottle then sprinkle a little water over them.
Add your food scraps (avoid dairy and meat), place it in the sunlight and cover the top with a cloth. It’s probably best to put a tray underneath the bottle.
Give the contents a stir every couple of days. Add a bit more water when you’re done.
Watch the food scraps break down over time and turn into compost.
Use the compost to grow your very own plant. Pop it in a pot, add some seeds and water it daily. [could link to our grow your own veggies activity etc]
Give yourself a pat on the back for keeping waste out of landfill.
The sun is finally here (maybe), so enjoy the hottest (maybe) season with these shiny activities.
