Every year in Australia, schools and preschools celebrate book week and have book parades where children are encouraged to come dressed as their favourite book character. I think this annual tradition is awesome.

I also think that a no-sew costume is awesome.

How To Make This Easy and Cute Very Hungry Caterpillar Craft

Step 1

Cut out the various shapes for the mask. Green and yellow circles for eyes; purple antennas; and red circle for the face.

Step 2

Using the hot glue gun, join all the various pieces together. (With super close supervision, I let Mr N and Mr M have a go with our low-temp hot glue gun. This was fantastic – here they were making their own costumes for the Book Parade! Now there’s a family tradition I’d like to keep up.)

Step 3

With all the pieces of the mask glued on and secure, make two small slits on the side of the mask.

Step 4

Thread some elastic through these holes and secure it so it fits well when the mask is worn.
