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.

First they had to find the caterpillar eggs inside our sensory bins (or bowls!)

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…

Kids Nook Comes to Eataly!

Last week we were invited to play some Sensory Storytime games at the Italian resturant/market Eataly for their one year anniversary.  We had a great time of course, and met some old friends as well as seeing new ones! It was a lot of fun, and we can’t wait to do it again!
