How to DIY Cute Caterpillar with Orange Peel

When I was a kid, I really enjoyed listening to caterpillar stories. The most profound memory is that there was a green caterpillar crawling and crawling. He was hungry and wanted to find something to eat. On the first day, he saw a red apple and ate it with a big gulp. The next day, he found two yellow bananas and ate them with a big mouthful. Day three….Day four……

So, today we will use the orange peel to make a cute caterpillar. This project is very good for kids. They will have fun. So Please don’t throw away the orange peel after eating the orange. Lets’s start.

First, we peeled the orange peel, then scooped it out into a circle with a plastic cover, and repeated this step, so we got a lot of small circles,as shown in the picture above.

Then we take a plate, put a leaf on it first, then put the round orange peel next to the leaf, and arrange them in the shape of a caterpillar according to the opposite direction. Then we use a black pen to draw the tentacles, then draw the mouth and feet, and put two black and white jelly beans as eyes.

A cute and beautiful caterpillar is ready, do you like it?

How to Make a Cute Cartoon Rainbow with AI

Rainbow is an optical phenomenon in meteorology. When sunlight hits water droplets in mid-air, the light is refracted and reflected, forming an arched colorful spectrum in the sky, from the outer circle to the inner circle, showing red, orange, yellow, Green, blue, indigo, purple seven colors. There are actually an infinite number of colors in the rainbow, for example, there are many more subtle differences between red and orange, but for the sake of simplicity, only seven colors are used as distinctions.
In fact, as long as there are water droplets in the air and the sun is shining at a low angle behind the observer, an observable rainbow phenomenon may occur. Rainbows most often appear in the afternoon, just after the rain, when the sky turns clear, when there is less dust in the air When full of small water droplets, one side of the sky is darker because there are still rain clouds, and the observer is no longer obscured by clouds above or behind the observer’s head and the sunlight is visible, so that the rainbow will be easier to see. Another place where rainbows are often seen is near waterfalls. In clear weather, spraying water or spraying water mist in the air with your back to the sun can also create artificial rainbows.
