Preschool Corner: Very Hungry Caterpillar

I made the boys activities a little harder than for Princess, after all they're almost 2 years older. A lot of my activities come from Carissa's AWESOME tot school pack.

First we started off putting the caterpillars and butterflies in order by size. Unlike their sister, they actually had to cut out the pictures. This takes a lot of concentration.

Superman really enjoyed the dot to dot.

Not that it's obvious yet, but this is a caterpillar to feed. Right now it just looks like a milk carton, imagine it painted and with eyes. This was very popular, and a great fine motor skill activity. They got to practice both with spoons, tongs, and then pouring the pom poms back out.

This was a great activity from Carissa's tot pack. It could be used so many different ways. I think she planned to use it as a book, it could also be a memory game, we laminated it and used it as alphabet tracers, can you tell which one the four year old did and which one was done by a two year old?

And of course we made egg carton caterpillars, completed pictures to come soon.

Superman actually used multiple colors, this is a big deal for him.

We had a blast, and didn't even get to all the activities I thought of.
