Paper ring caterpillar

Materials Needed

  • Construction paper

  • Child-safe scissors

  • Googly Eyes

  • Non-toxic glue

  • Tape

  • Pipe Cleaners

Let's Create!

  • Have your child choose which colors of construction paper they would like to use.

  • Stack the paper one on top of the other-either adult or child cuts about one-inch strips of paper (stacked so each color is even). Depending on the age/ability of your child(ren) you may want to use a ruler and make lines where your child(ren) should cut.


  • Make your first paper ring by taping (faster) or gluing the ring shut.


  • Then place the next strip of paper into the ring, then glue or tape it shut so the two rings are attached.




  • Continue doing this until you have reached the length you would like for your caterpillar.

  • On the final ring, place to googly eyes (or draw them on). Place antennae on the top using pipe cleaner pieces or small bits of construction paper.
