Paper Towel Caterpillar

Here is a cute caterpillar craft that Hailey and I made.

Here is what you’ll need: paper towel tubes, paint, paint brushes, yarn, scissors, wiggly eyes, small piece of construction paper and hole puncher.

Cut the paper towel tubes into several little pieces- I did seven.  These will make up the body of the caterpillar.

Why does she always eat the paint?  It doesn’t even smell good, I can’t imagine that it tastes good.  An unrelated note about the shirt Hailey has on- we received it as a product to review but I find it to be inappropriate.  So, I have turned it into Hailey’s painting shirt and am hoping it will be covered with paint soon.  She calls the shirt “my weird shirt.”

After eating some of the paint, get to work painting the paper towel tubes.

Let the paint on the paper towel tubes dry.  Then take two of your pieces and punch a hole in one end of each piece- these will be the head and the end of the body.  Then take the rest of your pieces and punch a hole in both ends of each piece.

After you punch your holes, use yarn and thread it through the caterpillar.  Don’t pull it too tight or you won’t be able to move his body around.  Then add wiggly eyes and use the construction paper to make antenna.
