Assemble your bottles.

Glue the styrofoam ball to the opening of the bottle.

Paint the ball for the head and glue the google eyes on. The kids can have fun painting this with a brush or you can just dip it in paint.

Wind the pipe cleaner around the bottle for the feelers. (As an extra you can put pom poms at the end for antennae)
