Make Egg Carton Caterpillars

What else can two kids do at home, besides watching cartoon, on a day when the weather is really bad? If your parents will let you than you can paint or craft.

A day when it just rained and rained was last week so my girls insisted that we do some crafting. As I wanted something easy to do that both girls with enjoy I thought we should try making caterpillars. Both girls were really happy about it and quite keen to get dirty♥.

As I wasn’t very sure on how to make one I searched the internet and I found one very easy step-by-step guide on Wikihow.

Our caterpillars were not as nice as the one on Wikihow but I still think the girls done a great job considering I only helped them when it came to making the holes for the ears.
