The life cycle of the butterfly is a very popular insect unit among the primary grades. This caterpillar paper plate inspired craft would complement such a unit.
We read my daughter’s favorite spring book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar for inspiration. Bring the life cycle of the butterfly alive by starting with this caterpillar paper plate craft. I provided a free printable template. Simply print, cut, and color.
- paper plate
- crayons markers, paint or color pencils
- Print my paper plate caterpillar template.
- Trace, cut, paint or color the caterpillar.
- Set aside to dry.
- Once dry, cut slits for the caterpillar legs.
- Bend paper plate caterpillar feet forwards and backwards.
Stay tuned for the chrysalis and butterfly paper plate stages of the butterfly life cycle.
