Practice Writing with The Very Hungry Caterpillar
You probably remember Eric Carle’s famous story from back in preschool. The caterpillar started out teeny, ate more and more … and finally exploded into a butterfly! You may have put the book back on the shelf, but wait! Now that your child is in kindergarten, it’s a great time to build on old foundations and take them to a new level. In this activity, your child can use ordinary household stuff to create an original sequel to the old book—and maybe a family classic that your family will love just as much.
What You Need:
- Freezer or butcher-type paper (a long, thin sheet)
- Old magazines with pictures of food or grocery store circulars
