Magic Marker Monday: Caterpillar Craft

Finally sharing the caterpillar craft that James made back in February at a friend's birthday party. It was a nifty little side activity for those who were tiring of running around and giving the backyard jungle gym a workout. It fit in neatly with the theme of butterfly thingies:
Spiderman, says you? Sparkly antennae, says I.

Butterfly jumpy house.

Normally, this is the effect most caterpillar crafters are shooting for:
Thanks, New York Cares Art Explorers, for the great demonstration!

Then, there's James. I really do wonder about his perceptions, sometimes. Times like these, I *really* wonder how the world looks to him.

James was delighted with his project, and played with it for weeks after. It flew, was naughty, and sometimes decided what book to read for bedtime. And really, what more could you want?

Sounds like James' caterpillar has the most delightful of personalities - LOL! Literacy is an especially big plus in handcrafted caterpillars' attributes and quite rare to boot ;)
