Remember the story of the very hungry caterpillar? We do! Here is a kids craft to go with this highly memorable childhood story. This Caterpillar Visor Craft is perfect for classrooms and/or parties. Kids will love these visors!!! Best of all they can make them without scissors or glue. Simply peel and stick the craft foam circle stickers to the visor, add Wiggle Eyes and these are ready to wear! We love simple, no mess crafts that kids will want to keep. This colorful Caterpillar Visor hits the mark!
While planting flowers in the yard a small caterpillar crossed the sidewalk. Of course, the caterpillar that slithered its way to the flower bed wasn’t nearly this colorful, however, it did inspire this adorable craft!
Instructions for Making Hungry Caterpillar Visors:
Start by removing the vinyl coil from one side of the foam visor. This should be done prior to giving these visors to kids so they are ready to decorate. This flattens the visor and makes it much easier to attach the craft foam circle stickers! FYI: the coil easily re-attaches at the end of the craft.
Give kids 8 assorted Bright Colored Foam Circles Stickers (included in the Caterpillar Visor Kit). Encourage them to layout the design of the caterpillar they would like or show them our example. Then simply remove the paper backing from the circles and attach them to the visor.
Continue until 7 of the 8 the stickers are attached to the visor, making sure to overlap the circles. Press to secure.
Now for the last circle sticker… the face! Before adding the last circle, cut 2 tiny antennae from Natural Twine and position on the visor. Peel and stick the final circle over the top of the antennae to hold them in place.
Press to secure.
With a Sharpie Ultra Fine Point Marker (any permanent marker will work), draw a small smile on the face.
Finish the Caterpillar’s face with 2 tiny Wiggle Eyes. These are included and already attached to Mini Glue Dots so kids can just press the 5mm Wiggle Eyes onto the face.
Now for the fun part! Re-attach the vinyl coil and this Hungry Caterpillar Visor is ready to wear!!!
- Have kids pick the color for the face of their caterpillar first. Then draw the smile on this circle and set it aside. This will stop them from sticking it to the visor before the antennae are attached.
