After my last post I decided that I would make a story board with the kids based on The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. I like to think that this will make the story more interactive for the kids so that are able to grasp onto the context of the story more quickly.
Again we started our activity off by watching Eric Carle read the Very Hungry Caterpillar ( you can watch it here ). I never tire of watching this.
Today we made the ‘A little egg lay on a leaf’ scene.
As you can see I have again cut out all the pieces for the kids to use. I didn’t have the exact colours I was looking for, but that’s what I plan on using the crayons for. Also if you don’t have coloured paper you can always colour in the sections to you desired colour.
All the items laid out on the picnic rug, I’ve also included one of those cheap plastic chopping boards for them to work on.
Tip- don’t forget to glue your background on cardboard first.
As you can see we coloured the blue back ground with crayons to try and make it look darker, it turned out ok. The rest was pretty easy, again my toddler just loved the gluing part, he stuck down the moon but I had to finish the rest.
He was pretty happy with the end result and kept saying Moon, Egg, Leaf.
Happy creating, don’t forget to come back tomorrow and see what scene we will be making next.
