Ingredients Needed:
C = cup, t = teaspoon, T = tablespoon

  • 1 pkg instant chocolate pudding
  • 2 C milk
  • Graham crackers
  • Chocolate Oreo cookies
  • Green licorice
  • Gummy worms
Materials Needed:
  • A cup (preferably a clear one)
  • Two resealable bags
  • Mixing bowl
  • Mixing utensils
  • Optional: a blender
  • Optional: a cutting utensil
Recipe Steps:

Step 1 (Clay): Pour package of chocolate instant pudding into mixing bowl and stir in 2 C milk until pudding is creamy smooth. Scoop pudding into bottom of your cup and set leftovers aside for now. This represents the clay inside the earth.

Step 2 (Sand): Take your graham crackers and place them in a resealable bag. Seal the bag and crush the graham crackers until pieces are small and crumbly. Scoop crushed graham crackers on top of the pudding in your cup and set leftovers on the side for now. This represents the sand inside the earth.

Step 3 (Silt): Either place Oreo cookies into a blender or a resealable bag and crush cookies until pieces are small and crumbly. Scoop crushed Oreo cookie on top of the graham cracker in your cup and set leftovers on the side for now. This represents the silt inside the earth.

Step 4 (Loam): Take your leftover pudding, crushed graham crackers, and crushed Oreo cookies and mix together to get a gravel-y smooth mixture. Place mixture on top of your crushed Oreo cookies. This represents the loam that sits atop the earth and that we use to plant.

Step 5 (Planting): Take the green licorice and untwist until pieces are thin. Cut into small pieces and stick atop your loam mixture. This is the grass that covers the earth!

Step 6: Place the gummy worms on top or stick them into your dirt.
