This simple caterpillar craft is crawling with creativity and is sure to bring fun for your toddler or preschooler as they transform a regular egg carton into this fuzzy friend. The mess factor is relatively low, making this craft all the more child-friendly to create.
Bonus learning: have your child help you make their breakfast with eggs as you use the last from the carton, and show them that you’re reusing the empty carton to create this fun, silly caterpillar. Presenting to them how something seemingly boring can be turned into something magical and fun ignites their creativity. This sparks the same imagination as gets triggered when children are able to transform regular boxes into trains or spaceships. Suddenly a boring old egg carton becomes fuzzy fun!
Materials:
Old egg carton, cut into rows
Green paint (or any color you want)
Pipe cleaner
Pom-Poms
Google eyes
Marker
Turn the carton upside down. Paint the egg carton the desired color and allow to dry. Cut pipe cleaner into one strip and poke through the front of the caterpillar’s head and back out to make antenna, bending the tips down to make the ends curly and not sharp edges. Glue on various colored pom-poms for a fuzzy back. Glue on google eyes and draw on the nose and mouth. Enjoy!
