While I know that Little Girl is still a little too little to do too many arts and crafts projects, that doesn't stop me from trying! So I decided we would make a hungry caterpillar together. I cut out rough ovals of colored papers and put scrapbooking mounting squares on the backs. Then I let her stick the pieces where she wanted to on the paper. Sure, there was a lot of picking them back up, and I did have to re-stick the piece with a glue stick when she was done, but it worked really well! Once the pieces were down I drew on the caterpillar's eyes and antennae, and Little Girl colored whatever she wanted, and added some buggie stickers.
I can't honestly tell you which one of us had more fun, but I can promise that fun was had!There will be more coming from us, I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
Little Girl and I had the opportunity to feed our very own Very Hungry Caterpillar! Using an egg-carton caterpillar and her plastic toy food, we let the very hungry guy eat whatever he wanted...!
(Pictures coming soon... I thought they were on the computer, but I can't find them...!)
