Weekly Play Group Craft: Worms (or Caterpillars!) in Dirt

Last week at our weekly playgroup, we read 
"The Very Hungry Caterpillar," 
& decided to make (and eat!) our own!

Worms in Dirt
(makes about 8-10 servings depending on size)
What You'll Need:
  • 16 ounce package of Oreo Cookies (or other chocolate cookies) For a healthier option, you could use Chocolate Graham Crackers
  • 2 cups of cold milk
  • 1 package of small chocolate INSTANT pudding
  • 1oz tub of Cool Whip, slightly thawed
  • Gummy Worms
  • Clear plastic cups
  • Ziploc baggies (sandwich size)
What You Do:
  1. Prepare the pudding with the 2 cups of cold milk. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Crush cookies in a ziploc back (if you are doing it yourself, one large bag with a rolling pin will be enough, or you can use a food processor)
  3. Add half the crushed cookies into the pudding, as well as the 8oz of Whipped Topping and mix together.
  4. Place about a spoon full of crushed cookies into each clear cup, then fill cups about half to 3/4 full of pudding mix, top with more crushed cookies.
  5. Refrigerate until ready to serve, place gummy worms on top and enjoy! 
Here are some pictures of us making it at play group:
