Today, I’m thrilled to share this simple very hungry caterpillar activity.
If you’re like me, then you’ve probably read, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, book more times than you can count. I certainly love the book, but I always struggled to come up with great activities and crafts to go along with it. After grabbing a stack of foam sheets, I was inspired to make this super simple, reusable puzzle!
We have the Very, Hungry Caterpillar board book and both of my kids love it! Afterwards, my kids always want to talk about the adorable caterpillar. This Very Hungry Caterpillar puzzle is an activity that kids can do over and over!
Materials for Very Hungry Caterpillar Activity
- Foam Sheets (Green, Red, Yellow, Brown, Purple)
- Paint brush
How to Make the Very Hungry Caterpillar Puzzle
- Fold green foam sheets into rectangles (fold in half lengthwise, then in once width wise and one more time width wise). You should have 8 rectangles to cut out.
- Round the corners of the rectangles.
- Cut out one red oval for the head
- Cut two antennae (we used purple)
- Cut 6 tiny feet (brown)
- 2 larger yellow ovals for eyes and 2 smaller green ovals for pupils
- 1 small green nose
Put out a glass of water with a paint brush and let kids put together the puzzle. After painting the back of each foam piece, the pieces will stick to any glass surface – like a sliding glass door!
