DIY – The Very Hungry Caterpillar Wall Collage with Letters


As we were having “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” as this week theme, I had made some nice wall collage as decoration and words learning.

What we’ll need:
  • colourful lowercase alphabets printout for the words of “the very hungry caterpillar”
  • green, red, and purple colour construction paper
  • unused box or cardboard
  • yellow and brown foam paper (or construction paper)
How to make it:
1. Cut out the alphabets printout
2. Cut the green construction paper into circle shape. You may cut few circles at once. I made six circles in one piece of paper, you may have different size, depending on how big the caterpillar you want.
3. Cut the red construction paper as the caterpillar head, also cut out two antenna shape from brown colour paper and six feet shape from purple paper.
4. Paste the green circles and on circles shape cardboard to make it more firm. Do the same to the caterpillar head. I also made three green oval shape as divider for the words.
5. Paste the alphabets on the green circle.
6. Stick the antenna on the head, and make the eyes and nose by using green construction paper, yellow and brown foam paper.
6. Now you can stick it on the wall. I use Tack It to stick it on, clean and easy to remove.


May spend some time in cutting out the alphabets, but it is worth as my little princess do like it so much. Every time I ask her “where is the caterpillar"?”, she will point this big caterpillar on the wall instead of the one in the book.
