I have seen this science activity in a number of places.
This week we finally got around to trying it ourselves.
First we picked out some pipe cleaners.
Then we cut them into pieces about 1" long
& put them into our bottle.
Then using a magnet we made our
fuzzy caterpillars crawl!
This activity didn't hold the Figlet's attention as long as I thought it would (she's 34 months) so I was pleasantly surprised when she got it out to show her Daddy when he arrived home. Since then she has played with it again & again! Science is fun!
