Good first day kinder art idea! Write child's name on a piece of paper. Use stickers to trace the letters. You can also trace letters with glue and use collage materials, such as, paper scraps, pasta, or glitter.
Caterpillar Pattern Activity - Interactive Patterning for Kids
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.
