All of this week, we are sharing different activities, games and crafts that are connected to this wonderful classic. Here is a simple and fun craft that your child can make after reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
- 1 piece of white cardstock or construction paper per child
- 1 red pom-pom
- 6-8 green pom-poms
- tacky glue
- 1 black permanent marker
- Optional: The Very Hungry Caterpillar book
I helped put a line of tacky glue on the middle of the cardstock. Sister started with the red pom-pom (head) and the green pom-poms followed. She was working on order and concentration. She was gentle and intentional about gluing the pom-poms on the straight line.
We hope that this post has inspired you to try this simple activity with your children. They will love it!

What educator and homeschool family doesn’t love Eric Carle’s books and illustrations? Aren’t Eric Carle pictures just amazing? We read these books with our children and students because they have so much to offer, both the literature and the artwork.
This series of 5 Art tutorials will focus on an amazing artist study (Eric Carle) and Art lessons, so it can be used with children older than the normal range for reading the picture books. It would also make a fun art lesson for multiple ages.
