The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is one of the best selling picture books for children according to Amazon. It says that the book is THE all-time classic picture book, from generation to generation, sold somewhere in the world every 30 seconds! Have you shared it with a child or grandchild in your life? Isn’t it incredible? Today I would like to share The Hungry Caterpillar Story Sequencing Craft to help children comprehend and enjoy the story better.

- Black pipe cleaners
- Bottle caps
- Colored pencils
Hungry Caterpillar Story Sequencing Craft
- Trace the bottom of the bottle cap onto your paper. Cut out 10 green circles and 1 red circle. (You can also get the free download below to help you with this activity!)
- Draw what the Hungry Caterpillar eats on each of the green papers. We did what he ate on the last day (cake, ice cream, pickle, cheese, salami, lollipop, cherry pie, sausage, cupcake, and watermelon).
- I found it easiest to draw on the circles before they were glued inside the bottle caps.
- Draw the caterpillar’s face onto the red circle. Glue two pipe cleaner antennas to the back of the red bottle cap.
- Glue all the foods inside the bottle caps.
When reading the story, add a link to the caterpillar until he is completely full. That’s a lot of food for one caterpillar to eat!
