As part of our minibeast and butterfly work we of course looked at The Very Hungry Caterpillar, always a favourite. It is the first thing I ever bought for Seb when I found out I was pregnant and we have done various related crafts over the years plus a Very Hungry Caterpillar sensory tub. It is such a timeless story.
I have recently been clearing out my craft stash and found that I had a tonne of milk bottle tops, the boys love them just to play with but I thought I would use a few of them to create a very simple hungry caterpillar picture. This is super simple and quick which means it is ideal for younger toddlers although my boys(3 and 5) enjoyed it too.
I set the bottle tops out in a tray with red and green poster paints and the boys used the bottle tops to print circles to make a caterpillar. I made sure the book was to hand to use as a guide when the boys were printing their caterpillars. Using a little yellow paint the boys added eyes with their fingerprints.
Once dry the boys added features and legs with Sharpies. I love how Sebs looks really shocked and Alexs looks very cross indeed!
