Today is Muffin Tin Monday! I LOVED today’s theme, Children’s Literature. We had lots of fun with our muffin tin today and enjoyed making a craft to go with it.
Our book selection for today’s theme was “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” Here is what the very hungry Aubrey had for lunch today…Side: Banana Caterpillar
First Row: Apple, Pear, Strawberries
Second Row: Oranges, Cheese & Sausage, Chocolate Cake & Pretzel Butterfly
Here is a close up of our Hungry Caterpillar.
Our craft project for today was our very own caterpillar. This easy project was lots of fun for Aubrey and she enjoyed making the connection between the caterpillar in the book & the yummy one she ate for lunch. Here is how you can make your very own…
1. Gather your supplies. Paper, string, straws, hole punch, scissors, pipe cleaners, embellishments, glue & tape. (I cut the circles and punched the holes in them & cut the straws before hand.) 2. Embellish the caterpillars body. Aubrey wanted a sparkly one so we used sequins. Glue eyes & antennas to one for the face.
3. Tape the legs (cut up pipe cleaner) to each circle.
4. String together alternating circles & straws.
5. Tie the end and enjoy your new friend!
