We saw this craft (image above is not ours) on Pinterest one cold afternoon and my caterpillar loving gal couldn't wait to get started. I love this craft because it incorporates some pre-school counting practise..and when there's glue involved it doesn't seem so much like work. Check out the complete how-to over at Kiboomu. We didn't have any paper plates handy so we cut a large C shape from heavy cardstock. We taped our finished caterpillar up in our crafting area so we can get a little counting practice done daily while we wait for paint and glue to dry.
