Wiggly Caterpillar Craft
Paper chains create a wonderful caterpillar that you can squish, wriggle, stretch and bounce. You can even turn him on his side and use each ring of his body to fill with a different number of fruits, foods or objects.
You can view The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle online here.
You will need:
Green paper (cut into chunky strips)
A pair of scissors
A glue stick/tape/stapler
Optional: Any details you want to add to your caterpillar face – pipecleaners, googly eyes, felt tip pens to draw
- Create your caterpillar face by cutting a circle out of your red card. Let your creativity out here as you design your caterpillar face.
- Make the caterpillar’s body by securing each green paper strip end to end to make a loop. Then attach each loop to another loop to make the body of your caterpillar – staples work well for this step.
- Attach the face to the front of your chain – a loop of tape or double sided tape works well for this step.
