An easy craft to do with your kids using paints, toilet paper rolls and a straw on a white piece of construction paper.
My inspiration came from Eric Carle’s Facebook page where he mentioned that he is celebrating the 45th anniversary of this classic book.
I love Crayola Washable Paints so we used these along with the toilet paper rolls to make the head and body.
Mine is on the left and my 2 1/2 year old daughters is on the right.
Mia loves painting with toilet paper tubes.
Her smile when she creates is the best part of our art time.
Next using a straw I added the yellow paint to the picture.
With the yellow I made the eyes, and curved over the top of the caterpillar.
Next I used the brown paint with the straw.
and lastly the Green paint with the straw.
Here is my Very Hungry Caterpillar complete and my daughter Mia’s.
I love Mia’s picture of the Very Hungry Caterpillar.
We love painting with toilet paper tubes and other items like straws. It is a fun way to create without using paintbrushes.
A Momee craft from my house to yours.
