Hungry Caterpillar

At the book fair the other night, Garrett bought the book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" after reading the book, Garrett and I decided to make a puppet for the book. (He is really big into puppets right now.) We took one of Dad's old socks and colored it all different colors (we used sharpie markers- a little messy but works well). I printed pictures of the things that the caterpillar ate from the book on cardstock paper. I cut a mouth in the sock and added a little pocket for the food to go into so it wouldn't fall out the other end of the sock. We glued googley eyes on and now we have a Very Hungry Caterpillar Puppet so as Garrett listens to the book he can also act it out or he can retell the story with the puppet to someone else. This has been a fun book activity.


  1. Sounds soo cute!! I would Love to see a picture of your puppet

  2. I'll see what I can do with adding a picture. Probably tomorrow!
