Egg Carton Caterpillars

 I'm behind again, but I have several crafts to share in the next few days. I recently had the joy of entertaining two sweet sisters ages 3 and 5 with craft time. This is one of the crafts we did together.

First save an egg carton.

Next cut out three egg sections. This is the body of your Caterpillar.
 Paint the body and allow to dry.
 Poke two holes in the head and feed a pipe cleaner through and twist together to form the antennas. (we used half of a pipe cleaner folded in half).
Done! This was a simple and fast project. The girls really enjoyed watching the paint change the water different colors as they cleaned their brushes before adding another color. Have fun!
