From Egg to Creature: Which came first – the chicken or the egg? Where does a butterfly come from? A frog? Etc. We are going to learn about the stages in which an animal grows – specifically Caterpillar to butterfly and tadpoles to frogs. Read or listen to the very hungry caterpillar.
Choose 2-3 20-30 minute activities from the options below:
Scavenger Hunt: look around the house for the different things the caterpillar ate – or better yet – make up different things he may have eaten with things you have in the kitchen (real or toy)
Play leapfrog – one person jumps over another person like a frog. You can use objects to jump over too (indoor as well)
Snack – a fruit from the hungry caterpillar and string cheese (aka a slice of swiss cheese or some else that the caterpillar ate)
Lunch – caterpillar pancakes (silver dollar size and line them up like a caterpillar) use veggies for eyes
Snack – anything green (like a frog) green grapes or apples and yogurt
Dinner – sandwich that looks like a frog (deli meat or cheese in the middle, black olives for eyes, and red pepper for a tongue)
