Youth from Giddings Public Library created these worms as part of a summer program. Youth volunteers glued googly eyes to chenille sticks. They also attached a chenille stick “leash” to each worm. Children lined up to get their worm and some beads after the program. Then each child sat down and using fine motor skills, placed the beads in the worm.
Trudy Doerfler did an amazing job coordinating the youth volunteers as well as the craft itself. The crowd was very large yet the room stayed orderly and every child (around 75) made a book worm to take home. Trudy was both brave and innovative to implement this activity with so many people.
