Monarch Caterpillar Printable Craft


Good morning! Last week, I posted a Buckeye Butterfly and the Caterpillar that goes with it. This week I’m posting the Monarch Butterfly’s caterpillar. This is such a neat looking caterpillar with stripes of black, white, and yellow. It would be really confusing if everything was outlined, so I just made the caterpillar black and white — your child can paint in the yellow. =) Print below and enjoy!

Facts About Monarch Caterpillars
The monarch caterpillar (larva) is in this stage of its life for 9-14 days, depending on summer weather.

The caterpillar sheds its skins (molts) 4-5 times and eats it.

Caterpillars eat a lot of milkweed in it’s lifetime, and it ends up pooping it out! Caterpillar poop is called ‘frass’.
