We Made It: Friday Showcase....Bookworm bookmark

We have been learning about invertabrates this week and we are always reading so I thought a "bookworm" was just the thing for this weeks craft. I found this idea, and it was simple enough for Grace and Mark to do on their own--with a little help with the glasses.
To get started, draw 6 circles on fun foam, making them a little smaller as you go along.
Cut out the circles.
Glue them, (we use foamie glue-it holds much better than elmers-)from smallest to largest.
We wrote "Let's READ" on our bookworms next.
Add some wiggle eyes. The project we found directions for had pipe cleaners as glasses, I didn't like these as our pipecleaners were too fluffy, I used crafting wire to make wire rimmed glasses.
Add a mouth and some hair and you have your own personal "bookworm" bookmark.
Check out the striking resemblance Mark has to his bookmark.
I love the hair on Gracie's bookworm!

I am such a bookworm! These are adorable! I was thinking of making the kids shirts with bookworms on them for school, but was wondering if my 9 year old is too old. I love them!
