We love The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. It is one of my favorite books to read with preschoolers.


I love finding fun crafts and activities to use with our favorite books. I found the cutest craft for you to do with your kids. All that is required are pom-poms, googly eyes, a low temperature glue gun, a wooden dowel and fishing line to create your very own hungry caterpillar. Your children will love playing with this cute little caterpillar and even acting out the story.

Find out all the details, with step-by-step directions on how to make this cute caterpillar HERE.
