There’s a worm in my apple! Send your kids back to school with a happy note and a funny treat in their lunch. Print out the bookworm pdf and cut out the apples. Punch a hole in each apple and string a green pipe cleaner through the hole. Add your favorite circle shaped cereal (we used Apple Jacks) to the pipe cleaner to make a worm.

  16. This is so cute! thank you! Could I ask one favor? Any chance you could create a version with the writing in block letters instead of script? My little readers won’t be able to read the cursive themselves. Thank you!

  21. I love this, but it hurts to use all my color ink. Can you create a line drawing in black to be printed on red or green paper?
