Cute Caterpillar


-egg carton



-googly eyes

What to Do:

Bring back an old-school craft and create a cute caterpillar just as all the real caterpillars are emerging outdoors. Cut a paper egg carton for the body of the caterpillar. Paint the entire caterpillar and let it dry. Add eyes and a smile to the head of the caterpillar. Poke a small hole in the top of the head and add pipe cleaner antennas. Create some of different lengths and make a whole family of caterpillars.
