A caterpillar is a young butterfly or moth that has hatched out of an egg. They are really big eaters with huge appetites. A caterpillar can eat 27,000 times its body weight in its life cycle! We have lots more fun caterpillar facts, colourings and puzzles in our caterpillar theme.
Younger children can practice their pen control with our cute smiley caterpillar tracing page.
Count the number of caterpillars on our caterpillar counting puzzle sheet.
