These caterpillars are so fun to make. Our kids have enjoyed making them at different times. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.
Easy to Make
We used three basic items to make them, clothespins, pom poms and craft eyes. What’s great is that the kids can each choose their combinations of colors to make their creations. And then some glue to bond everything.
Pom Pom Caterpillars
What you need
- Small Pom poms
- 1 medium pom pom
- Craft Eyes
- Elmer’s Glue or a Hot Glue Gun (a glue gun keeps the pompoms from falling off)
What to do
- Glue a medium pom pom unto a clothespin to make the head.
- Next, glue smaller pom poms (in a row) unto the clothespin.
- Then glue eyes unto the head.
Note: If using hot glue, help the kids with it since it’s not a safe option for them.
If you have some fake greenery laying around, you can let the kids have a branch or two to pretend their caterpillars are climbing on trees.
