The Very Hungry Caterpillar
I just discovered a new website called Child's Play Challenges. When I saw one of this month's challenges is to use The Very Hungry Caterpillar as inspiration I heard Nerd Nest say, "Finish that abandoned project!"
This scrapbook page about a field trip to the library has been almost completely done for a few years. In case you can't tell the Caterpillar is made from punched circles. All I had to do to finish was add the eyes, nose, feet, and antennae to the Caterpillar, and journal. It did not take me very long to complete it. Why did I wait so long?!
I also want to point out that this story is actually inaccurate. **SPOILER ALERT** It says the Caterpillar goes into a cocoon but any first grade teacher worth her salt knows that butterfly caterpillars use a chrysalis. 1 point for Public Education.
I put buttons over my kids pictures temporarily to protect them from internet predators. Although if there are people with button fetishes I have not done a very good job.
Thank you Nerd Nest and Child's Play Challenges for helping me finish my 8th abandoned project this year!
