White out pen or white marker
Googly eyes (optional)
Cut out a three cup section from the egg carton. Paint the carton black.
While the paint is drying, take 2 pipe cleaners. Cut them into quarters. We will use two pieces for the antennae and 6 for the legs. Once the paint is dry, use the pokey tool (totally the name of it... or a safety pin would work too) to make two holes on the top of the head, and three more on each side of the body.
Stick a pipe cleaner piece into each hole. On the inside of the carton, twist the cleaner to keep it in place.
Draw on the mouth and stick on the eyes. That's it!
Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow for our picnic cupcakes!
