Quinn came home from school super excited to share something he had made. He made these fun folded paper caterpillars and a little paper habitat for the caterpillars to live in at school.
Not only did he want to share with me how he made these cute little critters, but he really wanted to teach all of my readers how to.
Paper strips, scissors, glue and a pen or crayons is all you need.
You start with two strips and place them perpendicular to each other and glue the ends together.
Next, you just fold the paper strips over each other, alternating back forth.
As you get to the end, when you could probably fit one more fold in– leave it and glue the two pieces of paper together.
That will leave a little part sticking up, these are going to be the antennae.
Draw a face on your new friend and cut out his antennae.
They are kind of addicting. I imagine your kids will become addicted and make a whole family and maybe even a caterpillar home.
I hope you enjoy making these with your favorite little ones. I know Quinn is so excited to share. If you love his project or try it in your home, we would love to hear about it.
