Egg Carton Caterpillar

Spring is fast approaching and it's almost time for all the little creepy crawly creatures to come out and explore. This Egg Carton Caterpillar is a fun and easy project that recycles old egg cartons.

What you need.

Egg Carton

Masking tape or glue

Some old cardboard or construction paper

Markers or pens for customizing

Pipe cleaners


The first step to building your Egg Carton Caterpillar is cutting out half of an egg carton. Try to trim the sides evenly and be careful not to rip it.

Now it's time to colour your caterpillar. You can paint it, colour it with markers, or glue things onto it. We like to use lots of bright colours for our bugs. Have fun experimenting with the supplies that you have.

Take your pipe cleaners and cut out ten little leg pieces. Tape or glue these pieces inside the egg carton. Try to make the legs the same length, or if you want you can trim them once they are taped into place.

Now we need to add the facial features. Cut out two circles of white paper for the eyes and glue them onto the face. Next poke two pieces of pipe cleaner through the back of the head to make the antennae.

Voila! Your Egg Carton Caterpillar is complete, ready to crawl around and eat everything in sight. Have fun!
