Use a cup to trace out circles. You will need to trace as many circles to match the amount of letters in your child’s name, plus an additional circle.

For Thomas I needed seven circles total: six circles for his name and one more circle for the caterpillars face. I let my son pick which color he wanted for each circle!

Slightly overlap one circle edge with another and have your child help glue it in place. Glue the remaining circles together in the same way to form a line, it doesn’t have to be straight!
