Friday Fun for Kids at the King’s has taken on a fun new twist. Each month – the second Friday, as usual— we’ll feature one of our favorite children’s-book characters. For the month of March we spent a little time with The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
We started storytime with some of Eric Carle’s most-loved books: The Very Quiet Cricket, Mister Seahorse, 10 Little Rubber Ducks, building to our finale, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Then we had some real fun! Everyone got to munch on sticks of “caterpillar food” while we colored and answered questions about the book we had just read. It was a great moment of interactive listening for the kids and it was pretty fun for the parents as well.
Before anyone left we put a caterpillar tattoo, (temporary of course!) on every hand, or in some cases every foot.
Everyone had a great time this month with The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We hope to see you in April when we’ll spend some time with Spot the Dog!
