Fun with Eric Carle

 I have not come across one person as of yet who is not familiar with ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle.

As a kid I remember the magic I felt as my imagination soared while looking at those bright colorful pictures in Eric Carle’s books and the tales they spun. Our children are now experiencing the same thing. I would like to keep that magic alive!

There are many, many more activities out there on the web, in fact I found this fabulous blog that already has an immense amount of Eric Carle’s ‘Hungry Caterpillar’ activities on it and would love to share it with you- The ultimate list of Eric Carle activities by Teaching Mama. Check it out for yourself!

Another book of Eric Carle’s I would like to get my hands on is ‘The very grouchy ladybug’. With summer pretty much here we see these guys frequently!

In fact I have a great activity and learning games complete package in one easy download if your interested from Homeschool Share – grouchy_ladybug_complete package. Included in that package are learning activities, counting games, matching and science fun.

I have a feeling you will be seeing more posts on Eric Carle’s collection over the summer time, as we have yet to read ‘The Tiny Seed’ a great book to go along with our gardening!

Enjoy the sunshine everyone, it is a beautiful day 🙂

(I thought this scripture in 2 Corinthians most fitting to go along with the theme of metamorphosis!)

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

2 Corinthians 5:17

My days are filled with my family, raising 5 kids, homeschooling, running a Moms and Tots program in our local community, among many other hats I don on a daily basis! On our corner of the earth we have all 4 seasons, which most of them we enjoy immensely (I will tell you though- we do tire of long winters ha!). I love to share our surviving to thriving moments, the silliness and imperfections that come along with 7 different personalities under one roof. I also would love to share some tried and true resources and learning fun for you and yours to enjoy.
