Caterpillars * Recyclable Craft

I love recyclable crafts.

And even more I love the look on their faces when I set something like an egg Carton in front of them and tell them we're making Caterpillars. Have to love the "Huh ? ?" look. Super easy craft, take the bottom of an egg carton, cut in half and hand a half to each kiddo.
Than let them paint away . . .
They can take the Kasen route and mix all the colors !
Or the Taelor route and make a pretty rainbow
After they were done painting, I put them outside to dry, didn't take long here with the Tucson heat today.
After they're dry attach two googly eyes to the front. Next, for the antennas I simply cut a pipe clean in half, twisted around a pen and poked through the top of the egg carton. Easy Peasy .
We're in bug heaven over here ever since I got the boys bug catchers from the Dollar Store and these were perfect to feed into their Bug Lovin' .

Those are too cute! I love that it is basically a free craft too! I saw something similar on pinterest but they painted it to look like the Hungry Catepillar:)
