The children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is one of the most beloved books in our home.
When I was a school teacher, my young students loved it, too.
My students could probably sit and read it for a while.
Now, my kids and I get to enjoy it together at home.
In this post, we have a super fun activity: The Very Hungry Caterpillar printable book!
Visit our caterpillar and butterfly hub HERE!
We have dozens and dozens of awesome printables, activities and ideas that your kids will love!

These The Very Hungry Caterpillar printables are awesome!
They are perfect for younger kids and for older kids!
My children, ages 6 and 8 loved these!

Then, after we read the book, we continued with all the fun.
You can also get these The Very Hungry Caterpillar activities free printables (at the end of this post).
So, let’s talk about how this works:
- download The Very Hungry Caterpillar printable book
- print it out in black and white (one for each child)
- cut it out

Once the hungry caterpillar printables are ready, gather a pencil for each child and coloring utensils (crayons, markers, coloring pencils, watercolors, etc).

Alright, let’s get started with The Very Hungry Caterpillar mini book PDF printable.
First, you can choose to color the pictures all at once, like a coloring book, do all of the handwriting at once or you can choose to do one page at a time (handwriting and coloring).
But these The Hungry Caterpillar printables we also made to teach the names of each color and the names of the numbers 1-5.
You can do that all at once and do the handwriting and coloring later.
