Supplies needed:
1. clean egg carton
2. paints and paint brush
3. scissors
4. glue

Step 1: Cut two egg cups.

Step 2: Even out the egg cup edges as much as possible so they touch all the way around. Cut out the leaf and stem shape. And, roughly tear a piece of the egg carton lid to create the worm.

Step 3: Glue cups together. Cut a slit at the top of the apple to insert leaf and stem.

Step 4: Once the glue has dried, you're ready to paint.
