I google and pinterest searched egg box crafts and got lots of ideas. The one that Chester seemed to love the most was the many variations of an egg box caterpillar so we decided to give it a go. Chester chose 6 different coloured paints whilst I cut out the egg boxes. I have discovered that I am pretty useless at this seeing as our egg boxes looked nothing like the beautiful ones I had seen on pinterest!!
The kids started to paint them anyhow...
As you can see Millie thought it was better to eat the paint then her caterpillar! It was hard to get Chester to paint without mixing colours, but he managed it and was very proud of himself!
Now in an ideal world the next part should of been easy. But no, not in Sammies world. Oh no. The egg boxes then needed to be stuck together with good old pva glue. Sadly the boxes were all irregular sizes/shapes so they did not quite fit so I had to modify them to make them stick together! By the time I had managed it Millie had fallen asleep and Chester had wandered into the living room to play Ben 10!!
Can someone please put me out of my misery and tell me where I am going wrong with cutting the egg boxes?!!
