The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

We all know the story, so why not engage the kids in making their very own caterpillar:

All you need are:

  • a 12 egg box
  • paint
  • scissors
  • pipe cleaner
  • googly eyes

  1. Cut the egg box down the middle lengthwise, (you can use the other half as paint pots)
  2. Paint one pot red and the rest green
  3. Punch two holes in the first cup
  4. Give the caterpillar a face- either paint on eyes or stick on googly eyes.
  5. Cut a pipe cleaner in half and poke through the holes to make the antenna


Egg Box Dragon

This fire breathing fantasy animal makes a great addition to our Egg Box Crafts. For this you will need:

  • 3 egg boxes (6 egg kind)

  • red paper
  • 2 treasury tags
  • glue or sellotape
  • red and black felt pens
  • scissors


Cut out 2 cups and paint them green, making the eyes.

The other two egg boxes make up the head and body. If the box is already green then you can just add extra paint to make scales- if not paint the box green, wait for it to dry and then add scales.

use the treasury tags to attach the two cartons together. This allows the body to move when played with.
