What you need :
• Potting mix • Grass seed • A knee-high stocking • Decorations 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!
