Hungry Caterpillar -Spring to Fall


SPRING:
Image of Lakeshore Puppet kit, craft set up and read along for Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

 

Prep time involves creating loops to be assemble with eyes and feelers- poem for opening:

 

Roly-poly caterpillar

(wiggle right pointer finger)

Into a corner crept,
(place right pointer finger in left cupped hand)

Spun around himself a blanket
(spin around)

Then for a long time slept.
(place head on folded hands)

Roly-poly caterpillar
(wiggle right pointer finger)

Wakening by and by,
("stretch" right pointer finger)

Found himself with beautiful wings

Changed to a butterfly.
(flutter arms like wings)
