Tutorial: Easy Egg Crate Caterpillar Craft

My nieces made these cute caterpillars out of egg crates and I just thought they were so darling and simple I had to show them with you guys.

All you do is chop up an egg crate, punch or stab some holes where the antennae should go, let the kiddos go crazy with paint and after they dry string pipe cleaner for antennae and add some googly eyes and stickers or foam pieces or anything else you want .

So cute right?


  1. Indeed! My little guys will love these :) Almost anything with googly eyes is sure to please :) Hope you have a great rest of the week!

  2. So cute!
    I did bugs with egg boxes recently, but didn’t think of leaving a strip to make caterpillars!

  3. Great idea…I love using “trash” to make something new. My son is going to love this.

    I’d love for you to link it up to my new weekend linky party –
