Spoon Caterpillars

Here’s a fun little craft project to create your own spoon caterpillar. Have fun  sorting through a box of buttons to find the right sizes and colours of button for your creation. It’s a fun craft project to make with kids if you’re reading The Hungry Caterpillar or learning about the life cycle of a butterfly.

How to make a spoon caterpillar:

  • Paint th eback of the spoon in any colours you wish.
  • Add buttons along the body of the spoon, sticking on with glue.  We used PVA glue which takes a while to dry.  However you could also try using a hot glue gun or even a strip of double sided tape.
  • Add round stickers for eyes or stick on googly eyes.  You could also draw on with a marker pen.
  • Add antennae cut from card.
