Hi, my name is Christina, and this is kindergarten caterpillar crafts. Using paper cut outs and pipe cleaners, your children can create fun caterpillars that can bring a story to life and educate about insects. For this project, we're going to be using glue, a marker, circle cut outs, pipe cleaners, scissors and a piece of construction paper. First we're gonna start out by cutting our pipe cleaners in thirds. This can be a rough estimate, it doesn't have to be perfect. Next, we're gonna fold all of our pipe cleaners in half. This will make them the shape of a V so that they can be the the little caterpillar legs. Set one aside for an antenna. Next, let your kids glue down the circles for the caterpillar. They can do this however they want. This is a fantastic way to teach about colors and shapes. We talk about the circular shape of the caterpillar sections, and then about the different colors, which one is orange, purple, green. Next, lifting up the under side of each caterpillar section, place a liberal amount of glue. We're gonna put our caterpillar leaves down and put a little bit more glue on top of the pipe cleaner. The last thing to glue is the antenna. Now let the kids decorate the caterpillar however they'd like. You can use markers or crayons, draw a face, spots, stripes, whatever they'd like to draw. Crafts are such a fun way to help kids remember facts, but also to help them engage in stories. Thanks for watching.
