How to create a 3D caterpillar craft using a printable template

What you need:

Let’s start!

Step-by-step instructions

Print out the template you like. If you print in black and white, color it.


Cut out all the pieces – the caterpillar’s body parts, antennae, legs and head.


Fold the corners of each round body part (the part labeled glue).

Grab the glue – it’s glue time!

Add glue to the bent parts.

Start building the caterpillar from left to right.

Paste the first body on the left – into the two spaces on the template.

Continue gluing the remaining three body parts in the same way.


Take the caterpillar’s head and glue the antennae to the back of it.

Finally, glue the head onto the right body.


Now, take four legs and stick one on each body part.

All has been done! You just created a 3D caterpillar!
