Paper Towel Roll Caterpillar

Caterpillar Supply List: 1 paper towel roll, scissors, paint, stapler, google eyes, pipe cleaner
Start by cutting the paper towel roll into 6 or 7 same sized pieces.  Staple the pieces together to create your caterpillar.
Paint your caterpillar.  Cole wanted his to be green and blue.
Use glitter paint to decorate your picture.  Add google eyes and pipe cleaner as an antenna.

Book Suggestion: Very Hungry Caterpillar is a great story that follows a little caterpillar as he eats his way through some healthy snacks and a few unhealthy ones.  We love this book and Cole has loved it since he was little.  If you haven't read this old favorite recently I would recommend picking up a copy at your library or bookstore.

Wow! Just came across your site. what a neat idea! Love the premise - you certainly don't need a whole lot more than tp rolls to have fun. Keep up the great work:)
