Practice counting while you make these fun pom pom caterpillars.

How We Did It

Counting Caterpillars
To prepare for this craft I punched out circles and wrote the numbers 1-10 on them. I glued those circles onto construction paper so they could be the caterpillars' heads.
Counting Caterpillars
Glue pom poms next to each circle to make caterpillars. The amount of pom poms should equal the number on the circle.
Counting Caterpillars
Not only was this a fun way to practice counting (anything is fun when you include glue), but it was also the perfect time to talk about colors as she chose pom poms to add to the caterpillars.
Counting Caterpillars
Cut the caterpillars out (optional). Which caterpillars are longer? Which are shorter? You can also change this activity to practice sorting colors. Make a red caterpillar with red pom poms or an orange caterpillar with orange pom poms. Adjust it for older children to practice adding by writing the addition equation on the head and letting your child use the pom poms to solve it.
