Step 1: Use the scissors to cut half of the plate's rym away. This is the body of your caterpillar! Each plate makes two paper caterpillars.
Step 2: Next, decorate! Grab your favorite colored pencils, markers or crayons to brighten up your new crawling pal. Get extra wild and add stickers or crafting pom poms.
Step 3: Make sure the colored paper is handy because it's time to create the caterpillar heads. We freestyled this process, but you simply want to cut out a round head shape with two antennae on the top. Another option is to use pipe cleaners as the antennae!
Step 4: Give the faces some eyes by gluing on googly eyes or drawing a pair!
Step 5: Add a mouth to the face! Easy, right?
Step 6: Finally, attach the paper head to rest of the body by stapling it to the end of the paper plate rim.
Ta-da! The creation of your new spring time friend is complete! Now all that is left is to enjoy his/her company!
