Caterpillar Pattern Boards - Preschool math or busy bag activity and great addition to a unit on Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". Great idea to use something like an animal to start a pattern and then have the kids extend it.
Square 1 Art Project Very hungry caterpillar craft. When the caterpillar turns into a butterfly--use your child's hand prints to make beautiful wings! They'll love the feel of the paint on their hands.
