Tot School Tuesday - C is for Caterpillar

Again, we had a short tot school week due to everyone recovering from last week's illness, but we quickly finished up Aa is for Ants and then moved onto Cc is for Caterpillar (we did Bb is for Butterfly a few weeks ago). 

FOOD: ANTS ON A LOG
This is a yummy, delicious snack!  Roll a banana in ground flax seed (to look like a log) and add raisins (the ants).  Enjoy!


BIBLE VERSE:
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation" ~2 Corinthians 5:17a

LETTER Cc CRAFT:
I made up a template (available for your download) of "donuts" for "M" to fill in with Pom-poms to create a Caterpillar.  We used a larger pom-pom for the head and added wiggly eyes and a pipe cleaner for the antenae.



"THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR" BOOK AND ACTIVITY:
I took a plastic container that I had and made it into a caterpillar, with a large opening in the lid for a mouth.  I then printed out clip art (available for download - no point in extra work!) based on each of the foods in the book (and laminated them for durability).  "M" would "feed" the caterpillar as I read her the book.  She loved this!!!
