The Very Hungry Caterpillar Story Props



Such a simple way to create a story telling prop to accompany The Very Hungry Caterpillar book. Simply cover a Pringles tin with some plain paper, stick and cut out (or print out of the caterpillar on to the tin- if you want the caterpillar on pdf message me) and cut out a slot for the mouth big enough that you can post milk bottle caps in.


Stick pictures of each of the food items onto the milk caps (I drew mine but you could print out the ones below from TES you need to join but that's free)
It's not possible to see from the photos above, but I added a brown cocoon shape to back. When the caterpillar had ate all his food and slept for a while I opened the lid and pulled out a butterfly finger puppet I'd put in earlier.

Let me know if you make this I'd love to hear how it goes.
Post Edit: Due to several requests you can now DOWNLOAD the caterpillar and Cocoon

  2. Awesome! I have been trying to find something cute (and within my preschool budget) for this book for years--literally. Thanks!

  4. Absolutely love it! Can you post a photo of the butterfly? Also, how can I get the pdf of the caterpillar you made? It is so adorable!!!!

  5. Thank all for you amazing comments, when you have made this please show me a pic!

    Unknown: The butterfly is simply one a bought a while back, but is now unavialible http://pinterest.com/pin/482741081, but any finger puppet or toy will do. We have also made butterflies, which you could use but maybe use fabric or coffee filters to make the wings stronger: http://alljoinin.blogspot.com/2011/08/kkitchen-towel-butterflies.html

    I have now added a pdf with the cocoon and butterfly to alljoinin.net: http://www.alljoinin.net/All_Join_In/CLL_prints_files/hungry%20caterpilar%20pringles.pdf

  77. My name is Jane Wembli Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Rev. Fr. Kevin Doran A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via consumerloanfirm@gmail.com
