Promote cutting skills, pincer grasp, bilateral hand use, and imagination by creating a caterpillar. Each little creature you make can be unique depending on how long you make it, the colors you use and how the caterpillar is decorated.
Using the pencil and the ruler, mark the toilet roll every 2 inches and draw around the tube. These will be cutting lines we will use to create the paper roll caterpillar body.
Take the scissors and cut around the marks you have made so that you are left with several short tubes.
Paint the tubes both on the inside and outside, it is more effective if you paint the outside a different color to the inside.
Glue the tubes to each other, end to end, putting one tube aside to use for the head later.
Glue the head tube on the top of the last tube in the chain.
Using the glue, stick the two wiggle eyes on the head.
Draw a mouth just below the wiggle eyes.
Using the felt or the pipe cleaners, cut two short pieces and stick onto the top of the head to make antenna.
Cut two more pieces for each body section the caterpillar has and stick these onto the bottom to create legs.
