Craft: Toilet Paper Caterpillars

Give everyone a toilet paper roll and have them color them with markers - or paint if you are feeling brave.

Take a pipe cleaner, fold it in half and use a pencil to make the ends curly. Have the kids tape the pipe cleaner to the inside of the toilet paper roll.

Give each child a really large pom pom and stuff it in the end with the pipe cleaner. Choose google eyes and attach with glue.

Have the kids choose 8-10 small pom poms and glue them on the caterpillar's back. I used hot glue because some of these kids were just here for playgroup and we needed the craft to dry immediately.

I am sick, sick, sick. Miserable. I'll try and catch up when my head is not pounding and I can go more than 5 minutes without blowing my very sore nose. I worked today despite feeling like death warmed over. You don't really get a day off from being a Mom.

**The bin of pom poms was a gift from Kathy (a friend from my ward)
