more caterpillar crafts

Wow last week was so busy that I didn't have a chance to post anything and I got behind on my emails and spent yesterday clearing out over 200 messages.

Just wanted to finish off showing you the crafts we did for caterpillars.

The first was the second stage in the life cycle of a butterfly. Caterpillars.

We made them out of egg cartons.

They had fun mixing the colours before painting their caterpillars.

Close attention to detail.

Pipe cleaners and beads were added for antennae.

Then they could finish them off with pieces of yarn and more beads on the bodies.

The following day we made caterpillars in their chrysalis.

Starting with a toilet paper tube, gluing tissue paper on it then hot gluing a a pom pom on the inside.

Peek a boo caterpillar.
