Egg Carton Caterpillar

A LooLeDo Simple Craft


Getting Started

Always use your imagination and be creative when building this project or any others. It's your creation, so be inventive when looking for building supplies you just may be surprised! When building your project, experiment with new and different ways of putting it together. The most important thing is to have fun!

1Find these or similar supplies!

  • Egg Carton
  • Masking tape or glue
  • Some old cardboard or construction paper
  • Markers or pens for customizing
  • Pipe cleaners

21. Cut out the body!

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.

2. Color the body!

Now its time to color your caterpillar. You can paint it, color it with markers, or glue things onto it. I like to use lots of bright colors for my bugs. Have fun experimenting with the supplies that you have.


43. Add legs!

Take your pipecleaners 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.


64. Add eyes and antennae!

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.

5. Finished!

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