Caterpillar Craft

Fuzzy,wuzzy catepillars....
Many years ago I made this caterpillar craft with my nieces and nephews . And then again later when my daughter was old enough.

This craft is so easy and it's been around for ages. This is a fun craft for any time of year but especially for spring!!

What you'll need:
  • Pom-poms, in various colors and sizes
  • Tongue depressor sticks
  • Google eyes
  • Elmer's Glue or crafts glue
  • red felt
1.    Choose 5 colored pom-poms making sure 1 is bigger than all the rest.
2.    After you have chosen, the pom-poms glue them to the tongue depressor making sure the biggest one is first.
3.    Now glue two of the google eyes onto the face of the caterpillar. If you would like to make the happy version with a nose, cut a smile and a nose out of the red felt and glue it onto the face of the caterpillar.

Here's a nice story by Eric Carle that your children may enjoy!
