Craft with the letter C: Caterpillar

Craft with the letter C: Caterpillar

It has been a little while since we did alphabet crafts, mainly because the boys have had very definite ideas about what they want to do on our craft days.

I have definitely created some craft mad children, they want to be creative all the time.  But, they are also stubborn (dare I say it, like me) and know what they want.

As our crafting days are really for them to learn and be creative, I never want to stem their creative flow as it were, so I just let them get on with it.  Besides it can be fun, I loved when they asked to do Octonauts Masks, it was fun to think about how we were going to do them.

Anyway, it is going to be a little bit like buses, in that we did two alphabet crafts today; C and D.

Craft with the letter C: Meet Chris the Caterpillar

What you need:

  • Card
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Stickers to decorate
  • A pen

How to make Chris the Caterpillar

This craft with the letter C is so incredibly easy.  All you need to do is cut lots of little circles out, use a stencil if you need to.

Then stick the circles – big one first – in the shape of a C.

After that all you need to do is draw the face on the large circle and decorate the remaining circles. Then cut the ‘C’ out.

Both boys did this with ease, I drew the circle and they did the rest.  They just needed a little guidance when cutting the finished product out.  L just sat on my knee so I could help guide him.

I hope you can recreate this simple craft at home.  If you like this then check the blog in a couple of weeks for crafts with a letter D.
