Make This Cute Worm Craft

We made this cute worm craft to go along with our creepy crawly theme.

You can re-create this scene of a cute worm underground with a small view of the sky.  As an extra touch, cut out a movable paper stone and place it in the grass!

worm in dirt craft

Here is what you’ll need:

  • glue sticks
  • scissors
  • construction paper
  • markers

Directions:

  1. First, draw an outline of the worm on a piece of pink construction paper. You can use the picture above as a guide if you want. Cut out the worm’s body.
  2. On another piece of pink construction paper, draw an outline of the neck. This piece makes it look more worm-like, and less like a snake. Cut out the neck piece and glue it onto the worm’s body. Set the worm aside.
  3. On the brown construction paper for the background. Draw dots and speckles on the brown construction paper with a marker to make it look like dirt.
  4. Cut a 3 inch strip of blue construction paper for the sky and glue it to the top of your paper.
  5. Next cut a 1.5 inch strip of green paper and snip it along the side to make grass.  Line it up and glue the bottom of the grass to where the brown construction paper meets the blue construction paper.
  6. Glue the worm to the dirt area.
  7. Cut out small gray ovals and glue them onto the brown background to make pebbles. Draw dots and lines to make them look more realistic.  Make a bigger pebble and tuck it into the grass – no need to glue it down, and it’s fun to move around!

Paper Snails Craft

We made these paper snails today to go along with our creepy crawlies theme.

I pre-cut the paper into snail shapes snails and drew an outline of a leaf. The kids decorated and rolled up the snails, starting from the back end.  Then they cut out and decorated the leaves and glued on the snails.

Update: I made some really tiny paper snails that were super adorable, You can pair them with some of the larger snails as babies. I don’t have a picture yet but I wanted to share!

It’s such a good idea. I think we will probably end up making more all week long!

The kids really liked decorating and rolling up the snail shells.  A few of them made more than one. We ended up using them to decorate our Summer bulletin board.

The idea for this snail craft came from: Snail Project by ArtforYoungChildren.blogspot.com
