Celebrating the Very Hungry Caterpillar

With Children’s Book Week and the 50th anniversary of Eric Carle’s classic the Very Hungry Caterpillar this year, we set up some fun activities throughout the department to celebrate.

Our lovely caterpillars are eating lots and growing bigger every day!

We have two crafts out – Build a Bug and Make a Butterfly.

We also have a Very Hungry Caterpillar book walk along the windows.

There is a sensory bin with bug hunting for the littles and plenty of Very Hungry Caterpillar props near the puppet theater for storytelling.

There is also a Feed the Caterpillar game using pom-poms and squeeze bottles.

And don’t forget to do the Very Hungry Caterpillar scavenger hunt.  When you spot all the story shapes throughout the department, you win a prize!

Can you spot the warm sun here?

Next week, we will add another craft, a Very Hungry Caterpillar obstacle course, and a Very Hungry food toss!
