25 Fun The Very Hungry Caterpillar Activities

One of my all time favourite Kids books is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. As a qualified early years teacher I fell in love with this book and over the years have done several crafts and learning activities with young children that have taken an interest in the story.

Using a child’s interests to extend learning is a great way to scaffold and support a child in their early years development. I am a strong believer in child lead play and in enabling children to build upon their existing interests.

I am super excited to be sharing 25 fantastic activity ideas based on the theme, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”. Art and crafts can be a great way to help children develop fine motor skills. Not only this, taking part in fun activities can promote literacy and speaking skills, social development and engagement.

Having fun and using stories as a basis can help children to develop their imagination and creative sides. I hope you enjoy the collection of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Activities I have collected for you to see.
