Egg Carton Caterpillar


  • egg carton
  • Red and green paint
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Googly eyes
  • Paintbrush/black marker
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors, pencil


  • Step 1: Cut the egg carton in two and keep as many cups as you like for your caterpillar (requires grown up help/support)

  • Step 2: Adjust the sides so that will be the legs of the caterpillar

  • Step 3: Paint the head of the caterpillar red and the rest of the cups green or make it your own using your favourite colours. When finished let it dry.

  • Step 4:  Using a pencil make 2 holes on the top of the first cup (caterpillar’s head) to insert the antennae made from the pipe cleaner

  • Step 5: Now stick the googly eyes and draw a mouth if you like

TIP: Adults you can extend the child’s learning by retelling the story, you can draw an apple saying: “on day one he ate through an apple” … and so on….
