Caterpillars

Do you ever feel a little "bugged"? Well...we sure did when we were done with our caterpillar making! Granpa provided us with an empty egg carton and the idea to make caterpillars out of it.

Here's what we did:
To start off, Landon put his paint brush right in the paint and then directly into his mouth! His tongue and lips were white!


We painted the egg carton.
We painted the plates.
I think they were both more entertained with the paint plates then they were at painting the egg carton.

Christian had to get his plate all white before he would finish painting his caterpillar.



The finished product with a little help from Mom and Grandma. Little blue caterpillars, (with little paint on them) eating red flowers.

We had a great time working on these. Thanks for the idea Grandpa and thanks for the help Grandma!

Looks like Landon has your love of crafts! Maybe I'll try this with my two monsters.

Cute! Millie has learned the word "mess" so now she likes to make them so she can say that. I don't know if I'm emotionally ready for a paint mess yet...

How fun! Nothing like eating a little paint.
