Caterpillars are insects, which means they have three body parts (head, thorax, and abdomen) and two antennae on their heads. Most caterpillars are herbivores, which means they eat plants. Caterpillars eat constantly so that they can grow. Caterpillars grow up and change into butterflies and moths. 

To make your own caterpillar, you will need:

  • 6-8 pom poms/circles
  • 2 eyes
  • Sticks for legs
  • Leaves, gumnuts, flowers, seeds to create a home for your caterpillar
  • Glue 

Now create it in two simple steps!

  1. Glue the pompoms/circles in the shape of a caterpillar.
  2. Glue on eyes, legs and nature decorations to create your caterpillar scene!
