How to make it :

1 Mix the grass seed into the soil mix­ture and pour into the stock­ing. 2 When the stock­ing is just about full, sec­tion it off with rub­ber bands or twine to make the cater­pil­lar shape. 3 Tie off the end. 4 Put your cater­pil­lar in wa­ter for ten min­utes to give it a good soak then put it in a plas­tic bag overnight. 5 Take it out of the bag the next day and add some eyes and cater­pil­lar an­ten­nae – pipe clean­ers are good for that. Emily’s cater­pil­lar has very goo­gly eyes! 6 Leave in a sunny spot. Wa­ter your cater­pil­lar ev­ery cou­ple of days and watch it get hairier and hun­grier over the next few weeks!
