Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party: More Arts and Crafts Activity


Crafts and activities to go with the class Eric Carle The Very Hungry Caterpillar.


It's amazing what you can make with half of an egg carton. A little more messy than the fingerprint version but probably more fun since it doesn't have to stay as clean. All you need are egg cartons cut in half lengthwise, green and red paint, pipe cleaners and some markers to draw the face.


ABC and 123 learning has another craft idea involves using strips of pre-cut paper to make the caterpillar head and bodies.
