There is something about the way The Hungry Caterpillar eats it’s way through the pages – every day of the week – that appeals to children and parents all over the world!
Do you know that this book by Eric Carle was published in 1969 and has sold over 30 million copies!! We own 3 – one for the table, one for the bath and one just because!!! The Very Hungry Caterpillar is still one of our favorite books!
Craft activities that are paired with stories really brings the idea to life! We recently hosted a “Read It – Make It” book week where we collected over 50 craft ideas inspired by children’s books! Go check it out!
Here are a selection of our favorite Hungry Caterpillar ideas from around the web, created by some of the best idea makers and creators out there!!
