Cute Caterpillar

Catterpiller CraftThese little guys are great fun to make, collecting the leaves can be just as rewarding as creating the caterpillars.

What you need:

  • Big leaves
  • Glue
  • Pom poms
  • Small black stickers/googly eyes

Head out for a nature walk with the kids and collect as many large leaves as you can. When you get back to your playgroup sit the kids down at a table with the craft items listed above. Use glue to stick the pom poms to a leaf. If you have different sized pom poms use the largest size as the caterpillars head and smaller ones for the body. You can use stickers or stick on googly eyes to make the  caterpillars eyes.

Extension Idea: Why not tie in story time to your craft activity? The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a lovely book and a perfect accompaniment to this craft.
