Do you want a fun and easy recycled craft idea? Well, these Egg Carton Caterpillars are super cute and so fun to make! All you need is an egg carton and a few art supplies and you’re ready to create these adorable and colorful caterpillars.
- Egg carton
- Washable kids paint
- Large paintbrush
- Pipe cleaners (chenille stems – assorted colors)
- Craft scissors
- Black permanent marker
Using the craft scissors, cut off 3-5 sections of the egg carton together. If you want a really short caterpillar you can cut 2-3 sections. I recommend the adults to do this step.
Next, the fun part! Using the washable kids paint and large paintbrush, color each egg carton section using a different color. Let dry.
Lastly, cut two antennae for the caterpillar (about 2″), poke through the first egg carton section, and bend a bit on the inside to prevent them from falling out. Using the permanent marker, add eyes and a smile!
How adorable are these little caterpillars?
