6 Spring Caterpillar Kids Crafts

1. Cotton Round Caterpillar Craft: I love the idea of using small circle cotton pads for the shape of a cute little caterpillar. The texture of the cotton rounds makes such a neat design for the caterpillar body. Find the tutorial over at Family Craft via Where Imagination Grows.

2. Beaded Pipe Cleaner Caterpillars: this is a perfect activity for small fingers, as they thread on each pony bead to create their caterpillar. What great fine motor skill practice! Will you make your caterpillar a solid color, striped, or a rainbow of color? The choice is up to you!

3. Plastic Easter Egg Caterpillars: do you have leftover plastic eggs from your Easter egg hunt? Use up all those extra plastic Easter eggs by turning them into a colorful caterpillar. Find the tutorial over at Artzy Creations.

4. Very Hungry Caterpillar Clothespins: stack clothespins all together to color and turn into Eric Carle’s Very Hungry Caterpillar! Find the tutorial over at The Bottoms Up Blog.

5. Apples and Cheese Caterpillars: This caterpillar is edible! Make a caterpillar snack made from apples and cheese for a fun and silly treat. Find the idea over at Cute Food for Kids.

6. Live Caterpillars into Butterflies: you can order live caterpillars to get sent to your house, the kids love it. This is a great kit to get for a fun spring project!

Have fun crafting cute little caterpillars this spring!
