Busy Bag Ideas - Caterpillar Counting

Today we played with the Busy Bag Caterpillar. To make your own, you need: 
 a sturdy piece of rope, knotted on the end
a swim noodle cut into 21, 1" pieces
googley eyes and pieces of pipe cleaners for antennae

We assembled a caterpillar face on 1 noodle piece and drew numbers 1-20 on the other pieces. My preschooler then puts the pieces on the rope. I work with him to get his numbers in the right order, then he takes them off and plays with them any way he likes. 
Busy Time: 10-15 minutes
