Caterpillar Childrens Project

This is a great fun craft project for you to do with the children. It makes a great keepsake or why not write on the back and give it away as a fun card. If made as shown in the picture, it should fit into a DL size envelope.

What you will need:

  1. Card of various bright or co-ordinating colours
  2. Woodware Super Craft Punch – Circle
  3. Mixed shape and colour sequins
  4. Mini Glitter Foam Flowers
  5. Black felt tip or marker pen

Cut out 6 different coloured circles from the card using the super circle craft punch. Use craft glue to stick the six circles together overlapping as shown here:

Bright Caterpillar Stage 1

Use scissors to cut out by hand some feelers (see picture below for idea of shape) – approximate height cm.

Caterpillar Feelers

Use craft glue to stick the feelers to the back of the first circle. This is now the head of the caterpillar.

Caterpillar Stage 2

Using the black felt tip/marker pen draw a smile on the caterpillar face. Next either draw on eyes or stick on two round sequins for eyes as we have done. Finally decorate the body of the caterpillar with mini glitter foam flowers and brightly coloured sequins.

Completed Bright Caterpillar

We have shown above step by step instructions on how to make a brightly coloured caterpillar, below is another finished example in a pretty mix of pink, lilac & purple colours. We have used silver, purple and pink various shaped sequins and cut out a variety of shapes/strips from the spare card in co-ordinating colours to decorate this version of the caterpillar.
