Here’s What You’ll Need to Make this Caterpillar Craft for Kids…

Supplies for easy caterpillar craft

  • ankle size sock – I found a colorful pair at the Dollar Tree
  • stuffing – like quilters batting
  • colored paper tubes or colorful paper. I found colored tubes at Michael’s Craft Store.
  • *I like the fact that I didn’t have to paint the tubes, but these were very strong and hard to cut into 1 inch wide pieces. If you use ones from around the house, you can paint them or cover them with colorful paper and easily cut them
  • 2 pieces of pipe cleaner (about 3 inches long)
  • wooden skewer
  • google eyes
  • glue or tape to seal the end of the sock

Instructions for making the Sock Caterpillar

Colorful tubes for caterpillar craft

  • Cut the colored tubes or paper into about 1 inch wide sections. If you are using paper, shape it into a circle that will fit over the stuffed sock and staple to secure
Making a caterpillar craft

  • Kids can easily slip about tube pieces over the sock, spreading them out so the sock shows between the tube pieces
  • You can seal the end of the sock with a warm glue gun or duck tape
Adding antenna to the caterpillar craft for kids

  • Add google eyes and pipe cleaner for antenna. Secure with glue
  • To help get the pipe cleaner into the sock, I used a skewer to poke holes just big enough for the pipe cleaner to fit through. Then the pipe cleaners easily poked into the sock and stayed there
