Isn't this just the cutest little,project? Any little one would love to have mom or older sub,I got help me make this. You could also use this idea for inspiration and perhaps make a frog or other critter, just use your imagination. Add some other components like pipe cleaners and colored cotton balls on the ends to create antennas of feelers, and wings for a butterfly. The possibilities are endless! Thanks for sharing a fun idea!

I could add this to my list of activities with my daughter during summer. This is fun and easy to do! Very cute too! We can also make these on Halloween or maybe on her birthday. Just attach a yarn on it then hang it up or just stick them in the wall to make it look like their crawling.

simple and easier
