Carle’s Caterpillars

We have 4 copies of Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar; the girls loved having their own copy to follow along.  I read each sentence then Kelsey wanted to repeat the text.  We all discussed the illustrations and counted the holes in each food item. We also read Creepy Crawlies A to Z and I Love Bugs!  Kelsey wanted the caterpillars to look like Eric Carle’s so we used green and yellow paint over egg cartons.  I cut foam stickies and the girls made the faces.  We added a pipe cleaner antennae (color of their choice).

*Fun Fact: Upon a recent visit to The Academy of Natural Sciences we learned that butterflies spin a chrysalis and only moths spin a cocoon… Eric Carle’s caterpillar was a bit confused!!!
