The Very Hungry Caterpillar Activities for Preschool and Kindergarten


Book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle (*Amazon Affiliate Link)

One sunny Sunday, the caterpillar was hatched out of a tiny egg. He was very hungry. On Monday, he ate through one apple; on Tuesday, he ate through three plums--and still he was hungry. Strikingly bold, colorful pictures and a simple text in large, clear type tell the story of a hungry little caterpillar's progress through an amazing variety and quantity of foods. Full at last, he made a cocoon around himself and went to sleep, to wake up a few weeks later wonderfully transformed into a butterfly!

The butterfly Flies Here and There
Jolanda Garcia, KidsSoup Inc.

The butterfly flies here and there,
Laying eggs with so much care.

From a tiny egg, so snug and tight,
Hatches a caterpillar, small and bright.

It munches leaves, oh what a treat,
Eating until it's full and sweet.

Then it spins a bed, soft and round,
A cocoon where it sleeps, safe and sound.

It dreams and rests, feeling so neat,
Until one day, it's time to greet.

Out it pops, a sight to see,
A butterfly, happy and free!

Spreading its wings, wide and grand,
Off it flies, across the land.
