Two Caterpillar Crafts

This is the first Caterpillar craft we worked on. This is a cute craft that can be used with a Caterpillar book or to work with the letter "C".




We used: Construction paper, markers, scissors and glue.













I cut out the shapes and Cheyanne glued them on.





















Then she used the markers to decorate the picture.


















The Popsicle Stick Caterpillar


This is a craft even a young child can do.





We used a large craft stick, pom-poms, glue and chenille stem.














Spread glue on the stick.


Put on Pom-poms and add chenille stems for the antenna.

Cute Craft. It would be fun to do a unit on Caterpillars and Butterflies. Use this craft to kick it off, and then make a Buttlerfly using a letter B for each set of wings. Thanks fot sharing. (one B would be backwards but you could use it a teachable moment and learn about mirror images).
