For our art activity, we made caterpillars out of styrofoam egg cartons. The large size cartons work well when you cut them into sections of 3. These were  decorated with wiggly eyes, pipe cleaner antennae, and jewels and markers for color. This was a very easy, quick activity that the kids had fun with.
