Default Chain Caterpillar

This is a fun, simple craft for all ages (even daddy has fun trying to make the longest caterpillar). It's also a good project for practicing making patterns.

construction paper (2 or 3 colors)
scotch tape or glue
wiggly eyes (optional)
black marker

Cut about 15 strips of construction paper 1 inch wide and 10 inches long

Decide what type of pattern you want to make. We made a pink, purple, pink, purple... pattern for ours.

Make your first strip of construction paper into a ring and tape or glue it together

Slide your next strip of construction paper through the ring and tape or glue it into a ring

Repeat the process until you have a long chain of construction paper rings.

Cut one last strip of construction paper 2 inches wide and 10 inches long -- this will be the head (it needs to be a bit wider, so we can fit the face on).

Slide the head strip through the last ring on your paper chain and make it into a ring.

Antennas: Cut two 1/4 inch by 5 inch pieces of construction paper.
Wrap each around a pencil to make it curly
Fold a tab at the bottom of each piece
Glue the tabs onto the top of the head to make two antennas

Eyes: glue wiggly eyes onto the front of the head
draw two eyes onto the front of the head with a marker

Mouth: draw a mouth onto the front of the head with a marker
