Here is a post submitted by a reader:

This is a good activity for drawing circles, handwriting, and cutting, as well as pattern recognition.  I created a “caterpillar head” print out and have the kids each color and cut out the head.

Then, they choose three colors of construction paper to use to make the body.  They draw three circles on each piece of construction paper (9 total) about 2-3 inches in diameter.

In the circles, they have to write one thing that is that color (for example, on a yellow circle, they might write “sun”).

Then they cut out all the circles and glue them to the caterpillar head in a pattern.  In the end, they have a really long caterpillar to hang on the wall!

Below is the picture of the caterpillar head that was used in the pictures.  You could easily make your own as well.  Click on it to print the full size picture.

You can find another caterpillar post with lines on the bodies, and get the printable for that caterpillar here. There is also a post on heart bugs and caterpillars, and heart butterflies.
