Caterpillar Life Stages
After enjoying the book and learning about the life stages of a butterfly, encourage your little reader to grow like a hungry caterpillar with a fun creative movement activity.
Curl up on the floor and become a caterpillar egg. Maybe put a large pillow, a blanket or a towel on the floor to be a leaf then curl up on it.
S-t-r-e-t-c-h out of the egg and crawl along the floor like a caterpillar. Don’t forget to munch on good food along the way!
Roll your young reader up in a beach towel to be a caterpillar in a cocoon.
Just like The Hungry Caterpillar, your young reader can pretend to nibble a hole in the “cocoon” and push his way out as…. a beautiful butterfly who flaps his wings and flies around.
