My son loves The Very Hungry Caterpillar like most children do. We have a few other Eric Carle books that we enjoy also. I thought while he was out of preschool for the summer we would do some crafts with some of his favorite books to help keep him occupied and hope to have fun while doing them.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar- crafts and activities
This is what we found for The Very Hungry Caterpillar book:
coloring sheet on coloring.ws
Hungry Caterpillar template on DLTK
Hungry Catepillar Felt Print Out on DLTK
My son is 3yr so short and simple crafts are good. We do them and then on to the next thing!!! There are a lot of other very cute and fun to do crafts out there but these work best for us at this time. My son did not want to have his picture taken or have me read to him today. And that is ok, I do not plan crafts and activities for him to be unhappy but for him to have fun and learn a little sometimes. He did help me with the pom pom caterpillars and he read the book to himself while looking at his cut out pieces. I thought it was quite cute to watch him while he read and looked through them. Most moms do love to watch their children as they find themselves:-)
What you need:
pom pom’s, clothes pin, glue, googly eyes.
What to do:
I used the hot glue gun to glue on the eyes. Then I let my son glue the pom poms on the clothes pin. Simple and very cute.
So now we have a few extra things to get out at times when we read our loved book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar!
