Making a DIY Very Hungry Caterpillar puppet for pretend play is an easy craft kid's can make. It only takes 5 minutes start to finish to make one of these little cuties inspired by popular children's book. Older children will be able to make these on their own, while preschoolers like mine will need assistance. Use for imaginative dramatic play, in story baskets, and as an addition to a butterfly nature study homeschool unit. These make great birthday party and baby shower favors.
