. Materials 
* 4 cups potting soil * 4 tablespoons quick-sprouting grass seed (we used ryegrass seed) * Small yogurt container or paper cup * Knee-high nylon stocking * Colorful ponytail holders * Scissors * Plastic bag * Bobby pin * Googly eyes * Pipe cleaner * Small pom-poms X

1. Combine the potting soil and grass seed in a large bowl.
2. The Very Hairy Caterpillar Step 1 Cut the bottom from a small yogurt container or paper cup for a funnel, then slide a knee-high nylon stocking over it, as shown.
3. The Very Hairy Caterpillar Step 3 Pour or spoon 3⁄
4 to 1 cup of the soil mixture into the stocking, then slide a colorful ponytail holder over the end of the stocking to section off the pocket of soil. Repeat this process to make
5 soil-filled segments. Tie a knot in the top of the stocking and trim away any excess nylon.
4. Submerge the caterpillar in water for 10 minutes, then place it in a plastic bag and let it sit overnight.
5. The Very Hairy Caterpillar Step 5 Remove the bag and loop a semi-straightened bobby pin through the front of the stocking, then glue a googly eye onto each end of the pin. For antennae, cut a pipe cleaner in half, glue a small pom-pom onto one end of each half, and stick them in place.
6. Set your caterpillar on a plate by a sunny window and generously water the whole thing every other day. Your critter should sprout hair in about 4 to 5 days.
