Lottielulu includes this photo of a grassy caterpillar that her son made at school and what a great Earth Day project! Your child will love watching as the seeds quickly begins to sprout and turn into the caterpillar's grassy mane -- similar to a Chia pet.
A project for even the smallest of hands, this fuzzy grass caterpillar only requires an egg carton, pipe cleaners, grass seed and dirt. Also consider growing chives, sprouts, or wheat grass. Overall, a neat eco-friendly idea for teaching kids about common insects, all while reusing materials found around the house!
