The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Did you know that March 20 is Very Hungry Caterpillar Day? Me neither, until I happened across it online one day last week. I started thinking of all the stuff we could do, but I realized that Alice is still too little for most of the ideas I had, so we'll do it up big next year--if I remember.

We found some caterpillars outside Friday. Alice was very intrigued.

She watched this one crawl around for quite a while and wanted to hold it, but couldn't quite work up the courage.

I picked it up to show her how easy it was, and as a reward, I was pooped on. Alice was a little shocked and kept saying, "pewwwp!" all drawn out, over and over. She declined to try holding it herself.

Tonight we had caterpillar cupcakes for dessert and we will do a few simple caterpillar/butterfly crafts this week to get our school room looking like spring. Go here to download a free activity guide!
