Kate and Bella have been crafty! Their craft is a perfect way to use up those egg cartons and also a great activity to go along with the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

How to make egg carton caterpillars
I cut the egg carton in half lengthwise, and they painted and painted.
With a sharp object, I punched two holes in the top end.
The girls then threaded a pipe cleaner through the holes. We added a dab of glue to the underside to keep the “antennae” in place.
The girls then added some wiggly eyes and I hot glued some pom poms to the tops of the antennae.
