A couple weeks ago Jackson’s preschool held a family literacy night. The event was centered around the author Eric Carle and his books.
The kids had a blast visiting each classroom which had a different art activity based on one of Eric Carle’s popular books.
What I wanted to share with you was one of the activities the kids did in their classroom in preparation for the literacy night. They had been studying butterflies and read The Very Hungry Caterpillar in school. Each student made their own hungry caterpillar and the walls were decorated with their artwork.
I thought this idea was so cute! Obviously, it is made from handprints. Let’s be honest, what parent doesn’t love art made from handprints?! Anyway, just wanted to share in case you want to try it at home with your little ones. Don’t forget to read the book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, first!
