Hungry Caterpillar activities

Parents and online teachers can celebrate spring with these at-home lesson plans and activities designed to help with literature and learning, while encouraging imaginative play and exploration.

The downloadable, printable content also includes ideas and hands-on materials for hosting a Very Hungry Caterpillar Day-themed party (which was technically the first day of spring, March 20, but anytime is a good time for a party now!), whether it’s via virtual classroom or in a home school setup. From a complete teaching kit to posters and activity sheets, kids will be able to continue to learn from home with The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Parents can also help kids print and color their own bookmarks, color Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar, start a spring scavenger hunt in the backyard, and more with the free activity sheets.
