Craft Stick Caterpillars

To make these absolutely adorable little caterpillars, start by squeezing a thin strip of glue onto one side of the popsicle stick. It really isn’t necessary to add glue to both sides, the yarn will adhere just fine.

Unravel a good length of yarn and cut it from the roll. Press one end onto the bottom of the popsicle stick. Hold for a few seconds to ensure it sticks. Have the children start wrapping the yarn all the way up the popsicle stick.

When the whole popsicle stick is wrapped with yarn, glue the final end to the stick. Cut a small piece of pipe cleaner, glue to the backside of the popsicle stick, bend the ends. You have just made the caterpillar antennae!

Cut about 6 (for each caterpillar) 3-4 inch lengths of yarn for the legs. Have the child wrap it around the popsicle stick and tie to hold them in place.
