Graduation Crafts and Recipes
Acrylic Paints (in school colors)
Styrofoam Balls 1-1/2"
Construction Paper br>
Paint each of the foam balls. Let dry.
Paint the cheeks of the worm, paint the mouth and nose with Black.
Break the toothpicks in half. Apply glue to each end of the toothpick, then
use the toothpicks to join two balls (worm segments) together. Join four balls
to create the worm. Join the head to the uppermost part of the last segment.
Paint "spots" randomly on the top part of each segment with a lighter shade of the body color. Let dry.
Glue the wiggle eyes on the face.
Cut eight 2 inch pieces of chenille stem. Poke four pairs of legs opposite each other at the bottom side of the worm's body. Bend "feet" at the end of each leg.
To make the graduate cap: Cut a square of black construction paper. Using the
discarded piece of paper, cut a long strip. Make a circle with the strip and
glue or staple it in place. You might have to cut the strip down to fit the
worms head. Once the circle is dry, if you used glue, then run a bead of glue
along the top edge of the circle and place in the center of the square you cut
out earlier. Let dry completely.
Glue the graduate cap on the worm's head.
