Hello Crafty Friends! My kids were on spring break last week and with the cold and snowy weather we were having we decided to have an entire day of The Very Hungry Caterpillar activities! My kids are the perfect age for enjoying all things Hungry Caterpillar! It ended up being a ton of fun and a definite highlight of the week.
I’ve rounded up my favorite preschool ideas and included some pictures from our Hungry Caterpillar day. We tried several of these ideas but still have more we’d like to do!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Shopping
The first thing we did was go on a Hungry Caterpillar Shopping trip with these cute food shopping lists I created.
