Alphabet Caterpillars Paper Crafts

This is a simple cut and paste paper craft good "just for fun", alphabet practice, spelling practice, an insects theme, or an animals theme.  There are different types of caterpillars you can make:  Lower Case Alphabet,  Upper Case Alphabet,  Spelling Words,  Vowels (aeiou)

The pieces for this craft are fairly large (there are three pieces on each page -- making the entire alphabet takes 5 pages).  This looks terrific on something like a school bulletin board, but can be a bit large for small individual projects.

If you would like to do a smaller alphabet caterpillar, make your own small circle template from a piece of cardboard or margarine container lid.  Allow the children to trace this onto pieces of construction paper and allow them to print the letter on the piece.  Add wiggly eyes and pom pom antennas for a cute face!
