Sensory Play with the Very Hungry Caterpillar

This week was a bit of a Hungry Caterpillar week, can you tell? That’s okay, it’s absolutely one of our favorite stories! For our Sensory Storytime classes, we had the kids participate in a number of ways.

Next they made leaf homes for the little Jumping Clay caterpillars so that the little caterpillars could have lots and lots of food!

And after the caterpillar went inside his caccoon, he came out…
