We looooove gummy worms in our house.  The Babe would eat them every day if we let her.  And so would I.  It’s my horrible secret…  What beats a nice, stretchy piece of artificial color and fruit flavor :)  Doing activities with gummy worms while eating them, does, that’s what!  For a fun treat, here are 10+ ways to play with gummy worms.  Read to the end and you’ll find the brand new Love to Learn Linky full of other creative ideas for our kids, too.

Make Some Gummy Worm Crafts

1.  Paint with Gummy Worms:  The lack of control when moving the worm made for some experimental painting fun.

2.  Make a Gummy Worm Bracelet:   Little Nummies has some fun ones.

3.  Create a Wormy Play Dough Station:  Use I Can Teach My Child‘s chocolatey mud dough recipe, add worms, toys and play.

Do Some Gummy Worm Math and Science

4.  Make a Gummy Worm Wiggle:  Cut worms into quarters and soak in a solution of 1/2 cup baking soda and 1 cup water.  Soak for several hours, stirring occasionally.  Place them in a bowl, squirt with vinegar and watch them wiggle!

5.  Make a Set of Gummy Worm Chromosomes like photographer Kevin Van Aelst did.

6.  Dissect a Gummy Worm:  Learn about the parts of a worm by dissecting a gummy one, instead of a real one.  Smart Chick has a whole lesson plan printable for this.

7.  Measure a Gummy Worm:  STEM Mom’s tutorial helps teach measurement and scientific journaling.

Eat Some Gummy Worms

8.  Kid Made Mud Pie from B-Inspired Mama is a fun way to get kids cooking.

9.  Glow in the Dark Gummy Worms from Modernist Cuisine are made by replacing the water in the recipe with tonic water.

10.  Squirmy, Wormy Apples from $5 Dinners make gummy worms a healthy treat.

11.  Homemade Gummy Worms:  Oh Lardy has a great tutorial or you can use my homemade fruit gummies recipe and learn about polymers at the same time.
