The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Yesterday Ben and I read the Very Hungry Caterpillar and then painted our own caterpillars out of an old egg carton.

Ben chose to paint his with just red paint and I went for green and red.

This is the look I got when asking for a smile.  Got to love a 3yr old!

The finished product.  I found it interesting that Ben seemed to only paint the parts he could see/that were facing him.
Later in the day Anna ate the google eyes off the caterpillars.  So they will need a little reconstructive surgery tomorrow and they are now safely on the mantle out of reach of her destructive hands!

That's a really good idea. I'll have to try it with Jeffrey.

Very cute.

I wonder how many calories are in googly eyes. ;P
