Oh how cute is this caterpillar. it is made from water bottle caps so this is a great way to recycle them. This is a good project for pre-K or even kindergarten or just a bunch of friends. If you do not have a craft punch then just tracea circle using your cap as a pattern and cut with scissors and I am going to use felt. You can even add some glitter too or just paint the caps. So easy to do and very inexpensive.
