Kindergarten Caterpillars




I did one of those spring time favorites.  I save this for when the kids are getting antsy, and I need a crowd pleaser.  Rorschach paintings.  A great way to review color mixing and symmetry.  Then, we looked at the work of Eric Carle, and we created our own caterpillars by cutting circles, and using yarn snips for the legs and antenna. Very cute in my opinion! By the way, scholastic books has a great author interview with Eric Carle, who actually demonstrates how he made his hungry caterpillar.  The kids loved it!
