I looked around online but didn't really find much for name crafts, let alone a spring name craft. Using the circle idea from the name snowman, I came up with this little caterpillar name craft. Being spring, I thought it was time to talk to my daughter about the colors of the rainbow, too.
I used scrapbooking paper for the background, though a solid color may look nicer. I used a biscuit cutter to trace the circles. (I cut the circles pictured, but had my 4 year old cut most of hers herself.) After cutting, we arranged in ROY G. BIV order, and glued them to the paper. We made a face and added a pipe cleaner antenna. Then we used some of our foam letters to add some extra color to the caterpillar, though this would be great name-writing practice, too! (Obviously, I took this photo before we actually put the stickers on the caterpillar.)
This craft goes great with The Very Hungry Caterpillar and My Promise Rainbow.
What other books would you recommend for rainbows and caterpillars??
