Pipe cleaner caterpillar

2008_05_caterpillar

(This idea came home from school.)

Materials:
  • pipe cleaner
  • decorative beads with whole large enough to fit over pipe cleaner
  • optional: paper circle on which to draw face, white glue

Instructions:
  • curl one end of the pipe cleaner (so the beads don't fall off)
  • string beads along the pipe cleaner
  • leave 2 cm of pipe cleaner unbeaded
  • curl the remaining end of the pipe cleaner (so the beads don't fall off)
  • decorate the paper circle to be the face
  • glue the face on to one end of the pipe cleaner
  • bend the beaded pipe cleaner to shape!
