The Hungry Caterpillar

This amazing and world-known story of a caterpillar that eats and eats and eats
until it turns into a butterfly is very catching! Eric Carle books are full of
bright and lovely images that appeal to the youngest as well as older children
across the whole world.
There
ia a great variety of editions of this world-famous book, I have one that
includes a finger puppet that is a handy helper in reading for groups of
children. Thanks to this puppet, the caterpillar is super vivid, almost
live-like and children just love interacting with it.
Here
are some follow-up craft tips that you can do with your little ones.

Caterpillar Snack
 
 
Your
kids might be hungry by now so why not prepare them a simple caterpillar-like
snack? Use grapes for bodies and strawberries for heads. I couldn’t get
strawberries in the shop so used cherry tomatoes instead. Kids had lots of fun
doing these!
You
will need:
  • wooden skewers
  • green grapes
  • strawberries / cherry tomatoes

 

Post
activity at home – audio & video
 
To
do yet another follow-up, suitable for home environment, let your kids watch an
online puppet show: The Hungry Caterpillar Puppet Show or let them listen to a
lovely Butterfly song that my daughter Mája loves.
