My two year old had a blast last night watching an inch worm on our kitchen island scoot along (he came in on a bunch of basil I used in Gracie’s sweet pea basil puree). She’s into bugs lately so I thought we’d make her a little pet caterpillar to accompany the Eric Carle classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

There are tons of craft ideas I’ve seen to go along with this story but I woke up in no mood to paint (plus laundry piles may or may not be completely obscuring our dining room table) so I went with the totally clean, paper strip and tape caterpillar.

Read more about the paper caterpillar, and more caterpillar craft ideas...
