Pom-Pom Number Caterpillars Busy Bag

I'm always looking for easy prep activities to put together. We've done a few busy bags before and I've wanted to get more of them set up in our home. I was so excited when my good friend Sara McClure wrote Busy Bags Kids Will Love and I was happy to review the book for her and share one of the activities we made.

This Pom-Pom Number Caterpillar was perfect for my daughter since she has been into counting, especially up to 20. Right now I have just created it for up to 10, but I plan to add up to 20 later. I think we need more pom-poms for that.

I had to use some smaller craft sticks than Sara suggested since that was all I could find. I think it would definitely work better with the larger craft sticks as suggested so the pom-poms don't fall off. My daughter still enjoyed lining the pom-poms up on the sticks and she used her other hand to stabilize the craft sticks when needed.
