~ Handicraft - Egg Carton Caterpillar ~

Gladys has been pestering me to do painting almost every day. To fulfill her wish, we got together with our egg carton artwork again. This time we'll be doing Egg Carton Caterpillar. The materials are very simple and easily available.

First, parents will need to cut out a row of 'cups' from the egg carton. Depending how long you want your caterpillar to be. In this case I have a row of 3 'cups'. Next, it's PAINTING time. This is what Gladys enjoys doing most. Be sure to lay the newspapers and prepare tissues as it is going to get messy.

Paint and decorate your caterpillar in whatever colour or design you like it to be and leave the carton aside for the paint to dry.

Finally, poke 2 holes on the top of one of the egg carton 'cup' where the head of the caterpillar is suppose to be. Put the straws through it as the 'antenna'. You can also stick some straws at the bottom as it's legs. (I skip that part.)

Here you are! Two Egg Carton Caterpillars! :)
