This cute caterpillar on a leaf is made with your baby or toddler’s toes. It is so cute and is a great keepsake. This project is a cute wall or bulletin board classroom display. It is also a great project to make for Mother’s or Father’s Day. Follow the step-by-step directions below to make your very own toe caterpillar.
Materials: paper, crayons, black marker, paint, paintbrush, scissors optional:magnet and laminator
Step 1: Draw a picture of a leaf on a piece of paper or print a leaf template out.
Step 2: Have your child color in the leaf or if they are too young color it in for them.
Step 3: Paint tiny circles on each toe of one foot. You can use different colored paint for a colorful caterpillar or green.
Step 4: Press your child’s foot onto the leaf and let dry.
Step 5: Draw legs and a face on the caterpillar using a black sharpie or marker.
Optional Step 6: Laminate finished caterpillar (if you don’t have a laminator you can bring the project to a teacher supply store and they can laminate it for you. I recommend laminating the project if you are giving it as a gift or would like to keep as a keepsake. You can also glue a magnet to the back.
