Get ready for spring with this super cute capterpillars craft using egg cartons. Not only are they super cute, but they can bee educational too!
My kids love egg carton crafts. There are so many fun things you can do with them. This time, we decided to make something spring-themed and make our very own egg carton caterpillars! Our caterpillars were so easy to make, and they turned out so cute! We could hardly believe that these caterpillars were once egg cartons.
If you wanted to make this craft more educational, arrange your body pieces in rainbow order, or learn about patterns while making your caterpillars.
Egg Carton Caterpillars CraftThese adorable little creatures will make any spring day brighter and happier.
What you'll need to make egg carton caterpillars:
- Egg cartons (we like to use cardboard)
- Washable paint
- A large black pom pom (or you could use another color)
- Black pipe cleaners
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Googly eyes
Paint the cups with bright colors. We decided to go almost full rainbow, but we mixed up the colors a bit.
While the paint is drying, make the caterpillar head. We used a large black pom pom and gave it a pipe cleaner antenna. Googly eyes complete the face.
