Hungry Caterpillar

I found this blog, Meet the Dubiens, and I'm in love with it. She is so crafty and she's always posting loads of ideas and things to do with small kids. Some of my favorite crafts that she does are the ones that use her kids hand prints. I think that it will be great to look back at these crafts in a year or two and see how much the kids have grown. 

I've been trying to do some of these with my daughter, Claire (2 1/2 years), and she loves them. We started with the Hungry Caterpillar. I stamped Claire's thumbs to do the body and head, and then I used her pinky to do the antennae. I should have tried to make the antennae longer so that it looks a little less like a bunny, but I was afraid I'd mess it up. Claire didn't seem to care. I hung it up so that she could see it from her seat at the kitchen table, and she was so excited when she saw it. She started shrieking "It's the Hungry Caterpillar. Claire made that."


Go check out Jill's blog. It's awesome. We're working on the turkey hand print animals next!
