You will need:
- Conkers – about 12
- A drill
- Pipe cleaner
- Googly eyes
- Black pen
Step 1: Drill holes in your conkers
This bit should be done by an adult.
Hold a conker in place with a vice and then carefully drill a hole through the centre.
The hole needs to be wide enough to thread your pipe cleaner through so pick a drill bit that will be the right size for this.
For your snakes you will need about 12 conkers.
Step 2: Get threading
Thread your conkers onto a pipe cleaner.
Put the largest one on first and the smallest ones towards the end.
Step 3: Make sure they don’t fall off
Twist the ends of the pipe cleaners to secure the conkers in place.
Step 4: Make the snake’s face
On the biggest conker at the beginning of your snake glue on two little googly eyes and draw on a smile with a black pen.
Get wriggling and wiggling
Your caterpillar is now ready to play with. Bend the pipe cleaners to make it slither and slide.
