Wood and Yarn Centipede - cute centipedeUse a wooden Popsicle/ice lolly stick and scraps of yarn to make this cute centipede. It's a fun rainy day project for children.

And you don't have to use yarn - string, narrow ribbon, embroidery thread, or a mix will do fine and if you don't have wiggle eyes, use beads or just draw them on.



  • wooden stick
  • scraps of yarn or similar
  • wiggle eyes
  • glue
