DIY Caterpillar | Puppet for Kids | Art and Craft


[Captions by Judy V. at Y Translator] Isn’t it adorable? Hello! I’m Danielle. The author and illustrator of
Moose Mischief: A Pancake Surprise. And on the Moose Mischief channel,
I teach you about our amazing world through art, science, and craft projects. Today, I will show you how
to make a caterpillar puppet. Here’s what you need. Glue, a needle, green thread,
7 pompoms, 4 popsicle sticks, 2 small bobble eyes,
1 black pipe cleaner and scissors. For the first step, glue the
popsicle sticks in the shape of an X. We will do two of them. Set those aside to dry. Take the green thread
and thread it through the needle. Now, thread on the pompoms. Give yourself about a foot of thread
on each side of the caterpillar so you can attach it
to the control handles. So we will loop it around like this, and take our needle and pass it
through the little hole we created. Make a loop begin. Put the needle through the loop. And tie it down. Okay. Cut off the needle. And then you’ll want to do
that again to the other side. All our caterpillar needs
now is eyes and antennas. Let’s add the bobble eyes. For the last step, we
will add the antennas. You’ll wanna cut the black
pipe cleaner about right here. Now, bend the pipe cleaner, and glue it onto the caterpillar. You will do the same thing on both sides. Now that your caterpillar’s all done, you can take it outside to play with it. I bet it will go on lots
of fun adventures. I had so much fun making
this caterpillar puppet with you. If you had fun too,
like the video below, share it with a friend, and subscribe to my YouTube Channel. And please check out my book,
Moose Mischief: A Pancake Surprise. In the book, the moose claims
he’s the best chef in Alaska. But is that simply ridiculous? Buy the book to find out!
