Sparkly Apple Magnet

Here is a quick and fun craft for kids.  I had all the supplies on hand!

What  you need:
  • Red foam: I used a die cut machine to cut mine into an apple shape
  • Green pipe cleaner
  • Green glitter
  • Gold glitter
  • Wiggly eyes
  • Magnetic strip
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Use liquid glue to add gold glitter to the stem of the apple and green glitter to the leaf.  Cut a pipe cleaner in half.  Fold one piece of the pipe cleaner in half to make the head of the worm.  Use the pipe cleaner to carefully poke a hole through the foam.  Slide the piper cleaner through the hole so there is enough hanging out of the back side of the apple to twist in place.  Try to keep the back twist as flat as possible.  Cut any extra pipe cleaner off.  Add a wiggly eye to the worm and a magnetic strip to the back.  That's it.
