Caterpillar Craft

Here are the directions to making this cute little caterpillar:



Materials:

- styrofoam ball
- foam sheets
- pipe cleaner
- pony beads
- googley eyes


Step One:
Cut Styrofoam ball in half using a knife.


Step Two:
Using the styrofoam ball as a stencil trace and cut out foam circles.  I used 12 circles, but if you want your caterpillar to be longer use more!


Step Three:
Paint both halves of the styrofoam ball with green paint.  This part gets messy!


Step Four:
Stick pipecleaner in the centre of the back of one styrofoam ball.


Step Five:
String beads and foam circles onto the pipecleaner beginning with a bead.  I like to make a AAB pattern with two shades of green foam.  Don't forget to put a bead between each foam piece!


Step Six:
When your caterpillar is long enough cut the pipecleaner about 1cm from the last bead and place the other half of the styrofoam ball on the end.


Step Seven:
Using the leftover pipecleaner make two antennae by placing a bead on the end and poke into the head of the caterpillar.  Glue on eyes.  Enjoy your wiggly caterpillar!
