Default Egg Carton Ants- I CAN SEND PICTURES


The ant craft is fairly correct from an anatomic standpoint -- three body parts (head, thorax and abdomen), 6 legs and 2 antennae


cardboard egg carton - you need three cups attatched (so you can make 4 ants out of 1 egg carton)
yellow, brown, red or black tempra paint (or another color if you want to make a creative ant)
paint brush
4 pipe cleaners (chenille) -- three for legs and one for the antenna
sharp pencil
wiggly eyes, 2 cheerios or 2 fruit loops
black marker


cut a strip of cups (3 cups) from the egg carton -- adults can do this before craft time.

paint the cups and let dry

using a sharp pencil, poke two holes in the top of the first cup -- adults can do this step before craft time.

from inside the cup, poke both ends of the pipe cleaner through the pencil holes (one end through each hole) to make antennae

using a sharp pencil, poke one hole on each side of each cup (6 holes in total) -- again, adults can do this step.

Push a pipecleaner through the holes in the first cup. Make the same amount of pipecleaner stick out the sides -- these are two legs -- you can bend little feet into the ends of the pipecleaner if you like.

Repeat with the second cup and third cup

You should end up with 6 legs when you're through

glue the wiggly eyes onto the head (you could substitute 2 cheerios or 2 fruit loops)

OPTIONAL: draw on a mouth with black marker
