You will need:
• A piece of green paper or thin card
• A piece of red paper or thin card
• A piece of yellow paper or thin card (although this isn’t 100% necessary)
• A purple felt-tip pen
• A pencil
• A ruler
• Some scissors (grown-up use only)
• Some double-sided tape
• Some blu-tack or glue
Step 1. Divide your piece of A4 green paper into 6 even-size strips using your ruler and pencil. Then carefully cut the strips out using your scissors.
Step 2. Add a small piece of double-sided tape to the top of each green strip and peel off the tape-cover so that the sticky bit is exposed!
Step 3. Bend the first green strip into a circle and stick it in place using the double-sided tape. You will now have one green card circle.
Step 4. Now, take the second green strip and loop it through the first circle. Bend this second strip into a circle and stick in place using the double-sided tape. This is the start of your chain!
Step 5. Repeat with each strip of card until you have a green paper chain.
Step 6. Now it’s time to make your caterpillar’s face. Cut out some yellow ovals for the eyes and use a felt-tip or pencil to draw some pupils inside the eyes.
Step 7. Cut a circle out of the red paper or card. This will be your caterpillar’s face! Using blu-tack, stick the eyes onto the face, and use your felt-tip to draw the caterpillar’s nose.
Step 8. Using a purple felt-tip, draw and colour in some antennae and cut around those too. Attach them to your caterpillar’s face with the blu-tack.
Step 9. Finally, use the blu-tack to attach your caterpillar’s face to the front of the paper chain to transform it into the Very Hungry Caterpillar!
Step 10. Give your caterpillar a name and display him with pride in your home!
