I thought it would be fun to do a craft project to celebrate the release of our caterpillars into the world. I was inspired by these adorable pasta snails that I stumbled across on pinterest, and I thought it might be fun to let my 4 year old paint the pasta, and then she could make the body out of playdough. It turned out though that she wasn't too interested in painting, but I think they turned out cute this way too.
monster day and wanted to use some pasta to make playdough monsters too.
and finally, the critters that inspired it all!! Thanks Insect Lore for a fun project!
