I love caterpillers... so I bet you can guess that this one of my favorite crafts! 

Project Name: 3D Caterpillar on a Leaf

Project Video:

Project Difficulty: Easy

Project Materials:

  • Crayola Silly Scents Markers
  • Crayola Washable Glue
  • Crayola Gluestick
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Crayola Orange, Red and Green Construction Paper (or colors of your choice)

Project Instructions:

  1. Draw a leaf on the green construction paper. This should be similar to a football shape. Cut out. 
  2. Fold in half and crease. Fold a few more times to create the leaf veins and then unfold. 
  3. Trace the lines with a marker.
  4. Take the orange construction paper (or color of your choice) and measure out 1 and a half inches. Measure out 3 inches and measure out 4 and a half inches. 
  5. Trace those lines to the edge of the paper and then cut out. You should now have 3 strips. 
  6. Repeat with the red sheet of paper (or color of your choice). You should now have 6 strips, 3 of each color.
  7. Take each strip and fold in half. Cut through the half mark.
  8. Roll the  strips and glue into circles. Now you have 3 red chain links and 3 orange chain links. 
  9. Glue the chain links together.
  10. Cut out small strips from the extra green paper.
  11. Wrap around your pencil and remove. Now you should have two curly antennas. Glue to the top of the caterpillar's head. 
  12. Draw the eyes and mouth with a marker.
  13. Glue the caterpillar onto the leaf.

What are you going to name your caterpillar?
