  1. At our preschool a few years ago the kids made these and then put them into paper bag “cocoons” and rolled them up. A couple of days later at the open house for families, the kids opened their cocoons and the caterpillars had turned into butterflies – the teacher had clipped in painted coffee filters that the kids had made several days before (not knowing what they would be used for!) It was so cute to see them open the cocoons…

  2. These clips would be cute clipped to a colored lunch sack to make an adorable gift bag!

  3. This is an adorable little craft you’ve made there. Kudos!!! I definitely want to try that out soon.


  4. My daughter made me one of these this year in her kindergarten class for mothers day…I love it…They are so adorable

  5. My daughter is probably too old for these at almost 9 years, but I just had to comment to tell you how totally CUTE they are!


  6. I am gong to make these with my little ones and add a magnet on the back. Then we can clip their artwork to the fridge.

  7. I will have to try these with my grandchildren this Memorial weekend. They love doing crafts. How easy and cute!!

  8. Looking for ideas as to what to do with the clips. Laundry… snack bags… attach magnet and put on fridge… those all work but none really appeal to me all that much and I’m looking for more ideas because these are way too cute to deny my daughter… : )

  9. I remember these from my childhood – they are so cute! I’m currently making my youngest son a Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt wallhanging. These would be cute in his room too!

    Thanks for sharing!

  10. I love your blog too! These are so cute and easy for kids to make on their own.

  11. These are just as adorable as can be : ). Your blog always has the most delightful ideas!

  12. So cute! I made these as a kid in grade school and haven’t thought of them in years.
