A ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ Themed Play Date

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Themed Play Date | Mama.Papa.Bubba.

This morning, after two months of outdoor meet-ups {gotta enjoy the cool weather while we have it!}, our play school co-op resumed its usual themed indoor play dates.  Grae and I were lucky enough to be the first hosts, and with our focus being on favourite children’s books this month, we got to plan a morning around Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Since we’ve explored caterpillars and butterflies quite a bit and even raised them in the past, Grae and I were definitely excited.  Our morning consisted of reading the book as a group, creating paper plate butterfly life cycles using pasta, making flying butterfly blowers and testing them out, plus some butterfly garden play dough fun and lots of free play.

Here’s a peek at our morning…
