Here is a classic craft for kids - Egg Carton Bugs and Animals.  We had to convince my son to make this caterpillar, because he wanted to make a Dinosaur.  (We didn't have to twist his arm or anything because he really loves painting :) So he made both, they are almost identical just decorated differently.  This is a great craft to do for a large group of kids.





Supplies Need for an Egg Carton Caterpillar and Dinosaur Craft:

  • Empty Paper Egg Carton
  • Paint and Paint Brush
  • Scissors
  • Googly Eyes
  • Tiny Pom Poms (Optional)

    Directions to make an Egg Carton Caterpillar and Dinosaur Craft:

      • Start by cutting out a 3 hump section for the caterpillar (or 4 humps for the Dinosaur, shape one end into a tail) and shape one of the end humps into a head
      • Paint your caterpillar (or dinosaur) any color you want, let dry


    • Glue on your Googly Eyes
