Egg-Carton Caterpillar

What you’ll need:
-Egg carton
-Scissors
-Paint/crayons/markers
-Pipe cleaners
-Pencil
-Glue
-Googly eyes

Directions:
Remove the top or bottom of the egg carton, and then cut it down the middle, length-wise. Have your tot paint and color the outside of the egg carton. Wait until it’s dry, and then poke two holes for the antennae (pipe cleaners) at one end. Once you’ve secured the antennae, use a pencil to curl the ends on top. Help your toddler glue the googly eyes on and you have your caterpillar!
