Building an ant nest is not as complicated as it may seem.  We offer some tips and suggestions as well as some videos we have found.  Send in pictures once your ants start to farm and make a new colony.

Simple tools are needed in your building process.  Before using any tools or products contained in the videos below please ask you parents for supervision.  These videos were not made by us on building the nest but are a great reference and starter point.
