Activities inspired by books: The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Catterpillar 1 - The Yellow SideThis book is so colorful and beautiful, it is easy to be inspired by it. As with other books we have it in three languages: German, Portuguese and English. This meant we could open each book on a different page while we played.

First we did the caterpillar, using PlayMais…

The Very Hungry Catterpillar 2 - The Yellow Side…we painted some of the fruit the caterpillar ate…

The Very Hungry Catterpillar 3 - The Yellow SideThen we made the body of the butterfly and we painted its colourful wings (I helped with the outline of the wings):

It was also great fun to talk about the story and laugh about how much the caterpillar ate, and which are our favourite foods.

I am already thinking of which book to choose for our next “Activity inspired by books”! Let me know if you have a wish šŸ˜‰
