Making caterpillars is a snap when you use hair scrunchies! Ha! Get it? SNAP?! AHAHAHAHA!!! It's funny.
IIIINCHWOOORM... IIIINCHWOOORM... MEASURING THE MARIGOLDS... I found the easiest way to make some utterly adorable little caterpillars! Go ahead and stick him on some plants, on your desk, on a bookshelf (he can be a book worm if you draw on some glasses!) or even use him as a cat toy! The possibilities are limitless!
