Materials List

  • Two empty toilet paper rolls
  • Two cups cut from an egg carton tray
  • Red and white felt
  • Pair of 5mm googly eyes
  • Small silver multifaceted plastic bead
  • Acrylic paint in the following two colors: crimson red and white
  • Quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
  • Green glitter glue
  • Standard scissors
  • Measuring tape and pencil
  • Two paintbrushes


  1. Depending on the child's age, this step may need help from an adult. Press the toilet paper rolls flat. Measure and cut five rings from the flattened rolls, each with a width of 2". Pop each ring out again, shaping them into nice circles.

  2. Cut each egg cup smaller so that it would fit on top of a toilet paper roll ring.

  3. Glue each egg cup to a toilet paper roll ring and allow to dry thoroughly.

  4. Paint the rings with the attached egg cups red. Paint another ring red and paint the remaining two rings white. Allow to dry thoroughly.

  5. Cut a strip sized 5" x 0.6" from the white felt. Use it to glue the rings together.

  6. Depending on the child's age, this step may need help from an adult. Cut two red triangles for the worm's hat. Apply glue on two sides of the triangles and press them together. Allow the glue to dry for a few seconds. (See the diagram below for size and shape of the triangles.)

  7. Cut and glue a strip of white felt around the bottom of the hat, and then glue the hat on the worm's head (i.e. one of the egg-cupped rings).

  8. Glue the googly eyes in place. Cut a mouth from red felt and glue it below the eyes.

  9. Glue the bead to the point of the hat and use the glitter glue to add a zig-zag pattern to the hat to complete the little worm.
