The Very Hungry Caterpillar Playdough

Pin It
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Preschool Activities

While I was off sick last week, we did lots of sitting-in-bed-reading-stories kind of activities. So on days when I had a little more energy to play we were inspired by all our favourite kid's books. Vin asked for a caterpillar - I'm pretty sure he wanted to go out hunting for real life creepy crawlies, but he settled for some playdough ones instead!


What's your favourite way to bring a story to life?

  1. I loved how you incorperated the beads and googly eyes into playdough time. So great for those fine motor skills!
