We love to make butterflies, so a great way to start talking about the magic of insects is to create some cute caterpillars. A little backwards, but still a fun and adorable craft! This craft is also a great time to work on colours, patterning and even counting!
construction paper circles in lots of bright colours
embellishments to decorate (balls, glitter, etc.)
1. Get the kids to choose bright coloured circles to create their caterpillar.
2. Thread onto pipe cleaners to make the body of their caterpillars. Great opportunity to count how many circles you used, ask your child what the colours are or even create a pattern!
3. When the rainbow creatures are ready, add some eyes and antennae and voila! An adorable caterpillar!!
No matter how they make their crafts, their creativity is beautiful and the memories they create through their crafting is priceless.
