Cc is for Caterpillar

Last week I took a break from school to celebrate our son's 10th birthday and do some field trips with the kids which I hope to blog about sometime this week.  Prior to Fall break, my preschooler and I worked on the Letter Cc for our letter of the week for our Alphabet Boxes.  Cupcake #4 painted orange dots on the C's with a Carrot.  She also cut out some Cc pictures like cow, crocodile, caterpillar, colored them and then glued them on her page.  Then I took a blue stamp pad and let her press her finger on the pad to make the blue caterpillar prints that are at the bottom of the page. 

Of course, it's hard to go through Cc week without reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  After we read this cute book, I thought of this caterpillar craft made from an egg carton and colored pom pom balls.
I first cut a strip of the egg carton and colored the top of the carton with different colored pens.

Then my daughter made the head of the caterpillar by gluing eyes and a nose to the purple ball.  She then had to match up the other colored poms poms to the colors on the top of the carton and glue them on.
This was an easy and quick craft for color recognition and my daughter enjoyed making her caterpillar and she proudly displayed it when she was done.

This week, after having a nice Fall break, we get back into school mode and I will be teaching the soft sound of Cc to Cupcake #4.  I look forward to reading a cute story all about the Circus for this week's Alphabet Boxes!
