You can use these as substitutes on items above:
Try our bug part kit. It includes a Styrofoam ball, foamie hands, foamie feet, two 20mm wiggle eyes and pipe cleaner.
Make a pompom by wrapping yarn around a 5" piece of cardboard at least 100 times. Mix colors or use all one color. Cut a 6" piece of yarn and slide it under wrapped yarn. Tie tightly into a double knot. Turn cardboard over and cut completely through yarn on this side. Turn yarn blob sideways and smooth down strands.
Press Styrofoam ball onto a hard surface to flatten bottom. (You can also use an egg carton section.) Cover the top and sides of the ball with tacky glue. Separate the strands of the pompom to fit the Styrofoam ball up inside. Press pompon into place. Arrange yarn.
Print any patterns your bug might need. Staple all around patterns onto craft foam or felt as listed in the supply list. Cut out pieces. Glue the bottom of the Styrofoam ball on to the foam feet. Glue on eyes. For optional arms, cut the pipe cleaner in half. Glue on hands. Poke the pipe cleaners into the bug for arms. Bend at the elbows. Glue on the wiggle eyes.
Cut two small pieces of pipe cleaner for antennae. String a pom bead on each end. Bend to hold in place. Push into top of head.
