Caterpillar Pompom Craft

Supplies:

  • 8-10 small pompoms
  • 1 medium sized pompom
  • 2 google eyes
  • Glue
  • Green Paper
  • Scissors
  • optional: tweezers and leaf template

Directions:

  1. Cut out a leaf from green construction paper.
  2. Use Elmers glue and draw a snake type line on the leaf.
  3. Place the medium pompom at the top of the leaf (the beginning of the glue line.
  4. Continue to build your caterpillar using the small pompoms filling the rest of the glue line.
  5. Add the two eyes to the medium pompom.

Modifications:

  • Use a pre-cut out leaf.
  • Use a Q-tip if squeezing the glue container is too hard.

How to make it harder:

  • Have the kiddo trace the leaf to work on bilateral hand coordination.
  • Have them draw the leaf independently from a visual model.
  • Use tweezers to place the pompoms on the glue.
