My 3 (will be 4 in october) year old daughter wants to be a caterpillar for halloween.  THe only costumes I have found are for infants (bunting type).  Any ideas on how I could make her a cute caterpillar?

This Caterpillar costume was created to be worn for a parade.  It was created entirely out of various paper products.  This included tissue paper, wrapping paper, construction paper, paper ribbon, napkins, newspaper, etc.  The caterpillar costume included a papier mache hookah and a large set of glasses to cater to the caterpillar's very poor eye sight.

I wanted to make my little girl a fun and funky caterpillar costume, so I sewed bright donut shaped pillows out of fun fur with elastic bands on the top and bottom of each one. Then I attached them to each other with tights sticking out in between stuffed with stuffing. Her legs and arms were sticking out so she wore striped tights and a striped turtleneck. The hat was sewn out of the fun fur again with an elastic band under her chin and around her head, the attena's were dowels with pom poms on top. The outfit slipped over her head.
