Paper Chain Caterpillar Toy or Puppet
More Kinder Crafts
A simple-to-make caterpillar toy or puppet.
|Cut out 13 strips of paper that are 1 inch by 6 inches, and one that is 4 inches square.|
|Form one of the strips into a circle and secure it with glue.|
|Form the next paper strip into a circle connected to the first loop.|
|Continue until all 13 circles are connected, making a chain. Each loop is a segment of your caterpillar.|
|Cut a circle from the paper square to make a head for the caterpillar. Using a marker or crayons, add some simple eyes. Caterpillar eyes can only detect light vs. dark. Glue on two tiny triangular jaws (mandibles). Caterpillars use these to eat leaves.|
Glue the head to the caterpillar.
Optional: Make a nice, tasty leaf for your caterpillar to eat and rest on.
