Fun Earth Day Project

Look at how cute they are!! The students LOVED making these! We took egg cartons and cut them so that there were three holes in a row (this would be a great project for classroom helpers). I then had the students paint the caterpillars, add the beloved googly eyes and add antennas. We then added soil, grass seed, and water.  Then the waiting game began!  They started to show their growth after we came back from the weekend. The students were soooo excited to see them growing. 

Just a heads up... these do need A LOT of water... because the cardboard egg cartons soak up a lot of the water.  Over the weekend I had them sitting in trays of water so that they wouldn't dry out.
