Faemom Crafts for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Kids

Archive for May 14th, 2009

(These are really fun to make and play with.  We’ve actually done these twice.  Evan loves to play with what he makes.  Sean just likes to get messy as he makes things.  This is an easy craft, and it is not very messy.)

Things you need:

  •   Six to seven 1 in pom poms
  •   Popsicle stick
  •   Glue
  •   Black marker or goggly eyes
  •   Mini pom poms (optional)
  •   Magnet (optional)

Have the child put glue on the Popsicle stick.

Have the child mark the eyes with a marker or help the child glue the eyes.  Glue the mini pom poms on the head for antenna.  If you would like, glue a magnet on the bottom of the stick when the caterpillar is dry.
