The kids really enjoyed painting their caterpillars


4. Balloon Caterpillar

I simply blew up some green balloons and used tacks to attach them to the fence.  I used markers to draw the face on.  It’s not the best looking caterpillar, but the kids seemed to like it!  I tried to put some antennas on the balloon but only managed to pop it.  It was a last minute thing and I couldn’t think up anything in time.  Have any ideas?

6. Dirt & Caterpillar Cupcakes

These were easy to make because I had everything I already needed.  I just used some leftover icing from the cake and leftover Oreos and gummy caterpillars from the dirt pudding.

7. Bug Accents and Snacks

I used some McDonald’s toys from A Bug’s Life and Bee Movie to decorate the table.  I also put some gummy worms in glasses for everyone to snack on.

8. Caterpillar Favors

For favors, each of the kids got a rubber caterpillar to take home in addition to their egg carton caterpillars and bugs.

What other ideas do you have for a bug and/or caterpillar themed party?
