It’s caterpillar season at our house. We’ve been finding them crawling around all over the backyard, so I wanted to come up with a fun craft to do with Hazel (age 2 1/2). I dug through our craft closet and came up with this paper towel roll craft. My youngest just turned 1 and wants to do everything her big sister does, so I made a version of this craft that she could enjoy too 🙂

 

For Kids/Older Toddlers:

Step 1: (parent) Cover a paper towel roll in white paper using glue.

Step 2: (parent) Wrap one end in red tape (or red paper with glue, but the tape will help secure the white paper to the roll better). This will be the caterpillars head.

Step 3: (parent) Poke two holes in the red part for the antennas.

Step 4: (child) Decorate the caterpillar with green markers/crayons or by glue on the green objects.

Step 5: (child) Put the pipe cleaner antennas in the holes.

Step 6: (child) Glue on the googly eyes

 

For Younger Toddlers:

Step 1: (parent) Cover a paper towel roll in white paper using glue, and then wrap it in contact paper with the sticky side facing out.

Step 2: (parent) Wrap one end in red tape (or red paper with glue, but the tape will help secure the white paper to the roll better). This will be the caterpillars head.

Step 3: (child) Decorate the caterpillar with green foam paper pieces. (Your child will most likely take them on and off, and might even chew on them a little.)

 

I hope you and your kids enjoy this craft!

XO, Kacie
