February 12th, 2013 posted by Ann DeLong

This cute little caterpillar is very easy for little ones to put together. A little paint and some egg cartons and you have this fun springtime project.

You will need:

cardboard egg carton green craft or poster paint glue scissors green paper marker black paper

If you make this project

we’d love to see it! Just send your photos and comments to the editor and it may get published on our Facebook fan page ! 1. Cut through the center section of a cardboard egg carton, making the long six cup section the body of the caterpillar. Make the legs by cutting a small section from both sides of the cups. 2. Paint the outside with green paint. Glue the body to a piece of black paper. Trim around the edge when dry.

3. Cut the head from green paper and draw on features with a marker. Make the antennae from black paper and glue them to the head.
