I came across this bright idea a month too late, as our Eric Carle unit was finished. But you bet your bottom dollar I’ll be making this bad boy next year–it’s too cute not to! I found this lovely and incredibly easy idea when I visited my friend who had just had a baby. Her nursery theme was The Very Hungry Caterpillar and I about died when I saw this guy peeking up at me:
This would be super cute in a story pit or attached to the wall during an Eric Carle unit or even an Eric Carle-themed classroom! Simply glue green paper lanterns together with a red one on the end. Cut out felt or construction paper for the mouth and eyes, and hot glue thick brown pipe cleaners to the head for antenna. Slap the whole thing on a branch, and you’ve got yourself a Very Hungry Caterpillar! What a GREAT idea! Enjoy 🙂
