I just love how doing stART every week gets Will interested in new books.  A couple of weeks ago we read “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle and now it is a daily (two times a day) read at our house.  He even has the story memorized which is fun to let him “read” the book to me!  It is also a great book to start acquainting kids with the days of the week, types of fruit and counting objects to 5. 


For our project we made a caterpillar out of an egg carton.  Will loved the painting part.  He made sure we got the face just right, too.  A few days later he decided the face was all wrong, but he was still proud of his work. 

Painting the face with red craft paint.

Painting the body green.


Add googly eyes and a pipe cleaner for antennaes. Draw on the nose and mouth.
