The Very Hungry Caterpillar Creation Station

As I used to be a nursery nurse it wouldn't be spring if you didn't kick of the new season with The Very Hungry Caterpillar book! I wanted to provide a space for Elsie to create her own caterpillars, but as she cant tell me what she wants to use I came up with this creation station, with leave shaped paper, that had all she could ever need...

What you need:
Red pom poms 
Green pom poms
Glue pens
Various sized round stickers
Round stampers and ink
Green paper cut into various sizes leaves

Set up your invitation to play with an example of what your little tots can do, by providing a variety of media but not limiting them to what they can do. 

Elsie had lots of fun exploring the pom poms and stickers. And she used some great language when she was choosing the leaves she wanted (she wanted all the small leaves, apprantly the big ones are only for Mummy and the little ones were only for her!!)

What kind of caterpillar will you make?

Pin for later...


  1. I love this idea, we haven't read that book for a while but it always goes down well!
