Make Your Own Chia-Caterpillar

Isn't this little guy darling? My daughter brought this home from preschool and I just had to share him with you.

Supplies needed
  • old pantyhose (can have runs but not big holes)
  • dirt
  • grass seed
  • googly eyes
  • pipe cleaner
Cut a leg off of some pantyhose
Mix about 4 cups of dirt and 1 1/2 cups of grass seed in bowl or bag.
Put about 1/3 of mixture in the end of the pantyhose leg, tie a knot.
Repeat 2 more times. Cut off the extra.
Hot glue on eyes and pipe cleaner antennas.
Water him regularly and watch him grow!

My little ones have loved watching his "hair" grow. He might need a haircut soon. :)
