Activity Thursday – egg carton caterpillars

Egg carton caterpillars

I had lots of egg boxes left over from all the baking I have been doing over the past few weeks, so I wanted to use them in some form of craft. This is what we made.

They are pretty straight forward, but this is how we made them:

Let it dry, then glue the googly eyes on. Let the glue dry, then poke 2 holes in the top of the caterpillars head and thread a pipecleaner through for the antena, and there you have, your egg carton/box caterpillar.
