The kids made some super cute caterpillars out of egg cartons the other day. As I was getting the paint out Ash says, 'Oh are we painting with our handprints Mom?!' I love how excited he gets for our projects :) No handprints today buddy, but another day for sure!
|To prep for this project, I cut some cardboard egg cartons lengthwise.|
|Loading his paintbrush up...|
|Not loving his grasp, |
we'll fix that in a sec...
|Harley Jo :)|
|I love her focused face.|
|I like that grasp much better :)|
|A little over here...|
|He made sure to not miss a spot!|
|Gotta get the end...|
|Painting some green...|
|Time to add some eyeballs...|
|He put them right on top of |
each other lol!
|He thought that was pretty funny!|
|Haha! Love it!!|
Oh we added some antenna too. I cut a pipe cleaner of their choice in half, poked two small holes in the top and let them push the antenna through the holes. Then I twisted them underneath so they would stay.
|Adding a mouth..|
|And some ears...totally his idea to add these features!|
|Harley's cute caterpillar face :)|
|My munchkins' caterpillars! |
