stART- Diary of a Worm






I was so excited to see this book at the library. Not only does it fit right in with W week... but it's also by Doreen Cronin who also wrote my favorite Kids book Dooby Dooby Moo.

Diary of a Worm is really cute.  The humor in it was funny for both Hudson and Craig and I.  I give it 2 thumbs up.  Quite adorable.

So on to our craft...
To go along with Diary of a Worm Hudson made a spaghetti worm picture.

Materials:
  • cooked spaghetti noodles that are warmish
  • a piece of paper
  • brown paint (optional)

Place the noodles randomly on the paper.


Some can be wiggly, some straight. I think a few of Hudson's are even poking their heads up.

We used brown paint to splotch some "mud" onto our noodle worms.

Voila lovely worm art:)

We'll just pretend we don't know what happened with the leftovers :)

This is a perfect little boy craft. And there was food at the end, cool.

We have this book. A friend got it for my kids a while back and we even have finger puppets with it. I will have to remember this craft for when we are on the letter "W". Great messy fun!

I remember reading Diary of a Worm before. I love the idea of using the pasta to make the worms.

My daughter loves holding worms in her hand. I bet she'd love painting craft worms, too!

I have to look this book up - it sounds great. We don't do "food for art" here on principle, but I can see us trying something like this with white yarn.

Oh that is too fun! :-) I really like this craft. I am going to have to get the book so we can do this.
