Today's craft was inspired by The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Begin by decorating a cardboard tube any way you want. It doesn't have to be a caterpillar, it could be an ant or butterfly (ooh wings would be cool!) or any wiggly critter that suits you. Then slide two pieces of ribbon, about three feet each, through the tube.
To wiggle your critter you will need a partner. Each of you need to hold a ribbon in each hand.
When you spread your hands apart the caterpillar will wiggle to your partner.
And then your partner can wiggle it back.
Even toddlers like Yahoo can play with this. The boys helped model for pics by slowly wiggling the caterpillar down the ribbon but once I put my camera down they had the caterpillar shooting towards one another as fast as an Indy car!
