Wiggling Worms Part 2 (StArt)

 We had lots of fun learning about worms with the book Wiggling Worms by Wendy Pfeffer. We completed two really cool activities to go along with the book.  

                                               Counting Worm Puppet
 The aim of this activity was to color, glue the numbers 1 and 5 in correct number order, and place the stickers on the puppet according to the number on that part of the puppet. Before I gave the children this activity I attached the numbers 2,3,4,. So then the child would only have to glue 1 and 5 in the correct sequence. I also taped the sticks on the back before presenting this activity.


                                                       Placing the stickers on the puppet.

                                                                          Ta  Da!

                                                          Wiggling Worms
 For this activity you just need paint, construction paper, a piece of yarn , and a good book about worms.

                                              What a simple craft! They were totally focused.

  1. I really am enjoying your wiggling worms series. Very good and the children look to be enjoying it. Elle is still a bit too young to follow along on this but will "star" it for the future. Thanks! Kerri

  2. What a cute idea!

    I'll need to remember this.

  3. Those counting worms are so cute! They look like they could really squirm.

  4. The puppets are so cute. They were working so hard on the worm craft. It looks like a hit.
