Egg carton caterpiller
Craft Supplies Needed:

egg carton(cardboard or styrofoam)
paint, paintbrush

crayons or markers
chenille stem(pipecleaner)
wiggly eyes

Cut through the center section of an egg carton, making the long 6 cup section, the body of the caterpiller. Paint the outside and set aside to dry. Or use markers and crayons rather than paint if you prefer. Poke two holes at the top of one end of the caterpiller. Make the antenna by bending a chenille stem through the two holes. Glue on the wiggly eyes beneath the antenna or draw eyes on with a marker. Draw on a mouth.
