Notes: The children enjoyed Herman and the wiggle worm activity the most. For the wiggle worm activity, a volunteer cut worm-sized pieces of black yarn and put each one into a small paper cup. My volunteers then gave each child a cup with a "worm" to each child as they came into storytime. The children could take their "worms" home if they wanted. The bookworm bookmark was the favorite craft. I drew a template for the bookworm shape. Stickers, wiggle eyes, and a feather for each worm were provided. I found everything in our craft supply cabinet so I did not have to purchase any supplies this time around.
