Spring Caterpillars

Happy Spring! It's finally here! As of 7:02 this morning, Spring has arrived!

We will be reading a number of Eric Carle books in the coming weeks and thought it best to start with one of the most famous ones, The Hungry Caterpillar! To go along with the story we made our very own spring egg caterpillars.

To put a spin on the activity our eggs had letters written on each one and we were asked to put them in alphabetical order, and to come up with words that began with each letter. We also strengthened our fine motor skills by threading the eggs together on our pipe cleaner. We had a lot of fun while working so hard, and in the process made such cute caterpillars!
