The Very Hungry Caterpillar activity

Our daughter loves the book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle.
We did a little interactive, fun learning activity to go along with this book.
This activity allowed my daughter to engage and interact with the book as we read
through it.
As you read through the book with your little one (our daughter is 2) your child can go through and pick out each item you read out loud. My daughter loved the caterpillar we created, and she even had him eating through each item of food. (She made the munching sound and all) :)
We worked on naming each picture, colors, and counting. (She's getting so good at saying the days of the week) that's something else we worked on while doing this activity.

I just used construction paper, hole puncher, crayons, laminate, and scissors.
Create, then have fun with your little one. :)

Each day of our lives we make deposits
in the memory banks of our children.
