    What you'll need:

    • Cardboard egg carton

    Step 2: Paint the egg carton, with the first bit a dark red and the next two a forrest-y green.

    caterpillar_02-1024x680

     

     

    Step 3: Once the red section is dry, grab your yellow paint and draw two oval shapes where you would like the eyes to be. Once this is dry proceed to draw smaller green ovals in the centre of them to complete the eyes. Using your black marker, draw the nose in underneath.

    caterpillar_03-1024x680

     

     

    Step 4: Using your scissors, poke a hole in the top of the caterpillars head; this is where we're going to place the antennas.

    caterpillar_05-1024x680

     

     

    Step 5: Take out your orange or brown pipe cleaner and cut off a section of about 2 inches. Fold this in half and then fold the ends down a little bit to create the antennas. Stick this into the hole made in the caterpillar's head and your Hungry Hungry Caterpillar is complete!

    Whale_together11-1024x680

     

    What you will need:

    • Cardboard egg carton
    • Blue acrylic paint
    • Blue pipe cleaners
    • Blue craft paper
    • Googly eyes
    • Black marker pen

    Step 1: Start off by cutting out singular pieces from the egg carton, however many you would like to make. You may wish to even out these pieces if they are uneven from being cut out.

    Whale_01-1024x680

     

     

    Step 2: Then paint these pieces blue and leave to dry, remember to put down newspaper or regular paper on wherever you're painting so you don't get paint everywhere! (While you're waiting for this to dry you can cut out the tail and fins seen in step 5)

    Whale_02-1024x680

     

     

    Step 3: With your scissors, cut an x into the top of the egg carton shell. Then collect your pipe cleaner/s, cut them in half and then fold those pieces in half.

    Whale_05-1024x680

     

     

    Step 4: Get these folded pipe cleaners and twist them together on the bottom and then stick through the x made in the egg carton. Twirl the tops of these to give the effect of water spurting out of the whale.

  • 3D hand drawing

    A how-to on how to make this 3D hand drawing that you can show of to your friends and family.

     

     

    hand_07-1024x680

    What you will need:

    • Paper
    • Greylead pencil
    • Black marker
    • Coloured markers

    Step 1: Start off by tracing your hand with a greylead pencil

    Step 2: Then, using your black marker, draw a straight line that goes to where the hand outline starts, then when you get to the start of this outline, draw a slightly curved line across this until you get to the other side where you will continue drawing a straight line outwards

    hand_03-1024x680

     

    Step 3: Continue doing this method all the way up the hand. When you get to the fingers, customise the way the line curves to match up with the way the finger is going. For instance, if your finger is going on a diagonal, make the curved line follow the same diagonal. Also remember to continue a straight line when your not within the hand outline, this is what gives the 3D effect e.g when you're between fingers.

    hand_04-1024x680

     

    Step 4: You can then add colour to this drawing by taking the coloured markers and going underneath where the black marker is. If you don't like the look of the black marker, you can do this drawing in any colour by following the same exact steps and substituting the black for colour.
