How to ready your Uncle Milton ant farm

May be easy, may be not, but I'm gonna show you my detailed description of getting your ant farm ready.

So, I got this ant farm for Christmas, but I couldn't get any ants until May through June so I had sent for them around the end of May and finally got them on June 22 (they didn't cash the check very soon). Well, I ended up purchasing the expansion pack with some food, a water feeder, a poster, a magnifying glass, some ants, an ant fun book, and some other stuff.

Step 1: Retrieving your ants

Go to the mailbox, open mailbox, and marvel over the Uncle Milton's package inside.

Take the package out, and head up for the house.

Step 2: Opening the package

Set the package on the table, or another flat, pig-free surface.

Start opening one side of the package on the back side (I chose the right first.) This step is hard, considering the flap size that's somehow jammed down in there..... Open the other side, too.

Step 3: Removing the contents

Open the main flap of the box and lift the group of booklets laying on top.

Remove the ant tube, and study it (optional).

Also remove everything else including the magnifying glass, the ant poster, the ant food, the membership card, the fun book, and all of those instructions.

Step 4: Retrieving the ant farm farm

Head to wherever the ant farm farm is actually at (mine happens to be upstairs).

Make your way to where it's at (my bedroom..... don't mind the messiness. I have posters and drawings and that giant pile of crap is actually an organized shelf of crafting supplies that has come out of one of the four drawers I have full.)

Enter the palace--- I mean place... and grab the farm. Mine happens to be by my unused-as-of-now pink shag pillow and my World Explorer animal cards. (Yes, all those papers and stuff surrounding the farm were booklets and instructions that first came with the farm.)

Well, my aunt (who lives in NC) bought it at a store, so I guess you could check out locations/dealers on the Milton website.
This makes me want to have an ant farm... but we don't have those here :(
