Crawling Caterpillars

Crawling Caterpillars craft

Create a colorful creeper with paper plates. Will it be a hairy woolly bear? Or a caterpillar that’s knobby, tufty, or horned?

  • 1.

    Read or retell a story such as <em>The Very Hungry Caterpillar</em>. Look closely at the pictures. Find real caterpillars if you can.

  • 2.

    On the backs of paper plates, use Crayola Construction Paper™ Crayons to draw your caterpillar. It can look real or imaginary. With Crayola School Glue, attach your plates to each other so the caterpillar looks like it’s crawling.

  • 3.

    Glue pre-cut yarn to the plates for tufts, antennae, and feet. Air-dry your caterpillar.
