Caterpillar Activities

  • Print off these FREE Alphabet Coloring Sheets (variety pack) for coloring or stickering.
  • Try these Upper and Lower Case Dot-a-Dot sheets that include a letter recognition portion.
  • Create your own C is for caterpillar page to paint. We love watercolors at this age!
  • See if you can find any caterpillars. Research to see what they become. Look on the top of leaves for holes/chew marks. If you see that, flip the leaf over! There may be a caterpillar underneath.
  • Catch a caterpillar and watch it turn into a moth or butterfly. *Be sure to be careful of poisonous caterpillars.
  • Try to draw any caterpillars you find.
  • Draw or color the life cycle of a caterpillar
  • Act out the life cycle of a caterpillar: Be… an egg on a leaf. A caterpillar emerging from the egg. A tiny caterpillar eating lots of food. A tiny caterpillar becoming bigger and bigger. A caterpillar becoming a chrysalis. The chrysalis splitting open. The butterfly emerging and drying out its wings. A butterfly flying from flower to flower to find nectar. A butterfly laying eggs on a new leaf.
  • Do The Very Hungry Caterpillar Yoga at Cosmic Kids Yoga!
  • Make a thumbprint caterpillar

Happy Reading! Let me know which of these was your favorite! Did you find any caterpillars?
