I tend not to include crafts on the site that require you purchase a bunch of stuff... but this little guy is so cute, I couldn't resist.
Stay Organized: Hot glue a few of these caterpillar clothes pins to a piece of wood (1x2) and hang on the wall to clip school notices, homework, projects etc.
Get Creative: Provide the kids with a multitude of sizes and colors of pom poms plus some pipe cleaners, fun foam and scissors
and make this first critter to inspire them. Then let them create their own creatures (like frogs, butterflies and bumblebees).
