What You'll Need:

Colored cardstock or double-sided scrapbook paper, scissors, stapler, glue, pom poms, googly eyes, heart-shaped stickers, hole punch, chenille stems or pipe cleaners

Make It:

  1. Trim a few sheets of colorful double-sided cardstock into strips. Staple the edges together as you help your kids form the chain.
  2. Punch two small holes in the head and thread a short chenille stem or pipe cleaner through each to create curly antennae.
  3. Finish by accenting the caterpillar with cute pom-pom feet, googly eyes, and a heart-shaped mouth.
