from clay and wire.
What you’ll need:
Purple, green, white, and black clay
22 gauge, permanent-colored copper wire

1. Roll 6 or more balls of clay for the caterpillar
body and head. String them onto a piece
of wire that’s long enough to hold them all in
place, and then bend the body into the shape
you want.
2. Insert the antennae wires into the head and
add the antennae balls to the other ends of the
3. For eyes press the small purple balls into
the head. Press the white balls onto the purple
ones, and then add the tiny black balls onto the
white circles for pupils.
