The Very Hungry Caterpillar

As you will know by now I love this story and it is one of my all time favourites.  I love using it with the families as it covers so many learning opportunities:

  • Language development
  • Creativity
  • Imagination
  • Early number
The possibilities are endless as are the activities you can link to it.  

I printed off the cards in the picture from Sparklebox.  In order to match the story you could print several off at a time for the apples, oranges, strawberries etc.  You could cut the individual items out and the laminate them so you have more of a story sack.

Other ideas to try:

  • Make a wooden spoon butterfly - cut some wings from paper, decorate and stick them to the spoon

  • Make some egg box caterpillars

  • Make your own props with your child to retell the story.  Use different coloured paper and lolly sticks
Taken from Pintrest

  • Make some home made play dough to use with your child and make some caterpillars
