These loom band caterpillars are simple to make, and they have so much personality!

Rainbow Loom Caterpillars

We used a tutorial from The Crafty Ladybug (scroll down for the video), but we added googly eyes with glue.  We didn’t like the no eyes look of the caterpillars in the video.

Add some real sticks and leaves, and you have a fun set-up for imaginative play!

    What a great idea! This one is simple enough that mom might even be able to handle it. Mine are usually just a disaster that falls completely apart. Ha! Ha! The kids loom circles around me. :)

    I love this quiet and happy idea for kiddos on the road. I will link this idea to my website www.theeducationaltourist.com where I write about traveling with the kiddos and making each family adventure magical. I would love a shout out from you!

    Thanks for sharing!

      My boys love these! What type of glue did you use to attach the googly eyes?

        We used hot glue.
