A picture is worth a thousand words! Here are a few creative extensions related to the book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The challenge I gave to the families, who are a part of the Biehus Winter Session, is to select one book or poem for the week and find simple ways to make a connection to it each day. Spotting a butterfly in flight or reading the story in a new place (the park, a coffee shop…) can be just as meaningful as an elaborate art project (often times even more so!) so don’t feel pressured to channel your inner Martha.
