Happy Birthday Eric Carle!

Today we made some Very Hungry Caterpillars with our Microwave Kool Aid Play Dough!!! The recipe is in my last post here.  Wishing Eric Carle a Happy Birthday again on his real Birthday! I can't imagine a world without his wonderful books! What are you doing to celebrate?

Most of our inspiration to make these caterpillars comes from this wonderful stuffed Hungry Caterpillar that my daughter absolutely loves!

Be sure to check out our post here on Two Activities inspired by Eric Carle's book Little Cloud!
***Also be sure to check out the other wonderful Eric Carle activities linked up to that post here! (There are over 82 of them!)


  1. Beautiful art project.
    We did a collage project based on his book:"The Tiny Seed".

    He is one of our favorite authors.

  2. Wow! I love the colors of the caterpillars next to the green plants! Awesome.

    The last two years we have celebrated Eric Carle’s Birthday.
    This year we made a book we called Have You Seen My Hat?:
    Last year we made pancakes after reading Pancakes, Pancakes:

  3. The colorful caterpillars are a wonderful idea for a clay project with kids. Would it be okay to share photos of your project with our blog readers?

    Although our activity wasn't inspired by Eric Carle, "button bugs" are another easy clay project for kids.

  4. Where did you get your cattapillar from? that is just gorgeous!

  5. Aww that's brilliant, love this.
