To make this simple inchworm craft you will need:

Cut each pipe cleaner in half using the wire cutters. To start the activity, thread one pony bead onto the  pipe cleaner and twist over the end to hold it in place. Then hand it over to your child and invite them to thread on more beads. This can be fiddly work but it is great for working on pincer grasp and hand-eye coordination.Pipe Cleaner and Bead Inchworm Craft from Craftulate

They could make patterns by alternating bead colors, use one just color, or completely random! F really loved making them and made three!Pipe Cleaner and Bead Inchworm Craft from Craftulate

 

 

Leave a little space at the end and curl it round to form a head shape – this will also hold all the beads in place. Glue some tiny googly eyes to each side of the head, then bend the pipe cleaner into the classic inchworm shape!
