Fruits are Very Good For Me
Sung to “Old MacDonald”

With an apple here, and an apple there
Here an apple, there an apple, everywhere an apple apple
Fruits are very good for me
Continue with other fruits from the story!

Egg carton, paint brushes, green, red, yellow paint, pipe cleaners & scissors.
Cover your space with newspaper to avoid a big clean up!
Cut away 4-6 egg holders from the egg carton so they are connected in one straight line (See above).
Paint the first carton RED! Paint the rest GREEN!
Add eyes using paint.
Puncture 2 holes on top of the red head and add the purple antennae as seen above.
Have fun with your caterpillar once it dries!
