Caterpillar theme for family daycare homes or preschool
I am a stay at home mom running a family daycare and would like to share my theme that I will be doing with the daycare children this week. Nothing fancy, just trying to offer the children some fun crafty things to do. Every week I will try to post our new theme and ideas.
Poster board white
Finger paint or tempera paints
wiggly eyes-or draw them in
Take the poster board and have child do three hand prints from the paints listed above.(see the sample on the left)
Make the head as a painted or finger painted circle attached to hand print. Let dry, cut out shape similar to above photo and attach (staple) pipe cleaners on top of head. Add wiggly eyes or draw them in.
Here is a great book to go with this weeks caterpillar theme:
