Our latest Bookspiration theme was insects, so we chose to make an activity to go along with one of the most popular insects we know-- The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  

I'm sure you have read it at least once!  It is a lovely story following the transformation of a caterpillar to a butterfly, who loves to eat!  The way it is written makes it a wonderful children's book to use while working on story sequencing with your preschool or kindergarten aged kiddo.

How to Make Your Very Hungry Caterpillar Sequencing Stick

Begin prepping your caterpillar story stick by painting it green.  Print and laminate the Story Sequence Printable.  

Cut out each circle and the caterpillar head.  

While the caterpillar story stick is drying, glue each laminated circle to a clothespin.  

Once the paint has dried fully, glue the caterpillar head onto the story stick.  

Now it looks like a very thin {and long} caterpillar!

Read The Very Hungry Caterpillar to your child.

After reading have your child re-tell the story by clipping on the story sequence circles onto the caterpillar body.

This is such a wonderful way to work on fine motor skills, too!

Alternatively, you could have your child clip the story circles on as you read.
