If you recall in the book, the caterpillar eats through different foods on different days - some good food, some bad ;) and eventually turns into a butterfly.
For her lunch I printed a card off the computer and typed "Hope you are HUNGRY! Can you eat through all this food? Love, Mama xoxo"
I created the caterpillar sandwich cutting circular shapes for the body and stacking them (bread, cheese, bologna, repeat).
I created the caterpillar face from a piece of food color dyed provalone and colored his eyes, nose, and antennas. (There's a cherry tomoato behind it.)
There are apples, strawberries & cheese just like in the book, oh and some cantalope dices with a few blueberries scattered to fill. I created the hole in each of them, just like the pictures in the book, using a straw.
You can't forget the leaf he eats making him feel all better! I used a spinach leaf again cutting the hole using a straw.
Since he turns into a beautiful butterfly, I created one using a snack baggy and clothes pin. I filled the baggy with rainbow goldfish crackers and drew a little face on the pin. The antennas were created using a twisty tie.
There you have it - A Very Hungy Caterpillar Lunch. :)
Little Miss LOVED it when I showed her this morning. She said she can't wait to show her teacher and class.
