Day #34 …And His Name Is Wiggly Woo!
by Sara le Roux, Owner and Inspirer at The Creation Station Penistone and District
Boo is definitely a fan of anything creepy, crawly, and squirmy, and we regularly find him inspecting all sorts of creatures that are lurking around the doorstep.
What better ‘make’ for today than a wiggly worm creature!
What You’ll Need
- Wire, Pliers and Wire Cutters – we used craft wire but you could also use pipe cleaners
- Felt circles (with holes in the middle) – we used some green ones that we had left over from our last visit to the Scrap Store
- 2 Buttons – 1 large, 1 small, to fix to each end of the wire to keep everything in place
- Large pom pom – for the head
We decided to get comfy for our creative time today and hit the sofa with all our materials.
I threaded the large button onto one end of the wire and wrapped the end around securely so that there weren’t any sharp bits sticking out. I wouldn’t recommend letting your little one play with the wire until you are happy that the wire is secure – and that they aren’t in a really hyper mood and likely to injure themselves by waving it around.
Boo sat with a bowl of felt circles and off he went threading them onto the wire to make his bendy, wiggly creation – with a little squeal each time he managed to get a piece of felt in place.
At the end of the wire we poked the pom pom ‘head’ onto the end, and then the small button to create a wormy nose! Boo let me wrap the wire at the end and secure it in place (no sharp bits!) before he had a go at bending and wiggling his wormy friend into different shapes 🙂
