More Caterpillar Fun

We continued our caterpillar study yesterday by reading Creepy, Crawly Caterpillars and Caterpillar Spring, Butterfly Summer.

After reading, we made a bouncypillar which we found here.

Then, we played an addition game. On our walk, earlier that morning, we collected a few fallen leaves. When we came home, I wrote simple addition problems on the leaves (1+1, 2+2, etc.) Then, I cut pipe cleaners into small pieces, which Arin bent into shapes to represent caterpillars. I couldn't find the tweezers this morning, so she used an alligator hair clip to pick up the appropriate number of caterpillars and lay them on the leaves. She really enjoyed this game. She seemed to like the bouncypillar craft too, but once she played this game, there was no contest between the two!
