Caterpillar Craft for Kids
An all time favorite book of ours is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. I love talking to my kids about the butterfly life cycle, and they love hearing about it. It seems about as close to magic as we can get. I mean how does a little insect hide out inside of a shell for a while and turn into a butterfly? Mother Nature…you got me there. We always welcome Spring, and Spring in our house is synonymous with bugs, mud and gardens. All of which you will find in this blog. Of all of the activities that we do, this caterpillar craft for kids is one of my favorites. I like to set it up as an invitation to create, but I do give them a bit of guidance by telling the kids to make a caterpillar like the one in the book. Tip: I love to use plastic chip and dip trays from the dollar store when providing the kids with various art forms and tools. They are so perfect for this and truly do look inviting when set up!
