What you need: Paper plate (unwaxed) - one plate makes two caterpillars, markers, pipe cleaners, glue.
How to make:
- Step 1: Cut the paper plate in half. Then, cut out the middle circle away from the bordered edge.
- Step 2: Use the circle piece for the head of the caterpillar. It will need to be trimmed down to a smaller size to fit.
- Step 3: Have the children color the border piece (which will become the caterpillar body). Encourage creativity, stripes, dots, swirls, color them in a variety of designs!
- Step 4: Use markers to draw faces, or if you have googly eyes on hand you can use those. Cut a pipe cleaner to length, curl it with your finger to make them look like bent antennae. Attach to the back of the head with glue. Allow to dry.
