Craft

This was an easy idea that I’ve done before — teen volunteers punched out the circles from cardstock and the kids assembled their own caterpillars and colored them. They had a great time assembling their caterpillars and writing out their names.

How It Went

This was a very loud and rambunctious storytime — the kids loved shouting out colors in “Toot Toot Beep Beep” and “Dog’s Colorful Day.” And this group had NEVER heard “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” before! I was very glad to fix that and they enjoyed hearing about the letters climbing up the coconut tree. I always love getting to use my “Very Hungry Caterpillar” flannelboard because it was the first one I ever made! The letter puzzles continue to be a huge hit, and I will keep doing it until it gets dull!

    Thank you for posting these storytimes. I have been using/stealing/borrowing many of your ideas. I wanted to let you know how much time you have saved me and I appreciate it. New ideas and comments on “how it went” are great.

    Not sure if you want to fix this/if it’s easy to fix, but your Letter C is not tagged as an “alphabet storytime” so it doesn’t show up with the rest of the letters! I was still able to find it looking under Storytime, though. 🙂

      Yes, thank you, for pointing that out! It’s very easy to fix and I’m grateful that you told me about it.
