My Favorite Things Caterpillar Activity- Free Printable Included

One of my favorite parts of parenthood has been watching my daughter’s interests, favorites, and personality develop. This cute activity and the free printable that goes with it will be fun to look back on for years to come. This easy printable activity can be done at home or in the classroom!

Materials Needed

A piece of construction paper, a printed activity sheet, glue, colored pencils, and scissors lay on a counter.

Scissors
Glue
Pencils, markers, or something else to write with

This activity is effortless to prepare for. You just need to gather the supplies and print out the free file. After that, sit down with your little one and read each circle to them. If your child can write on their own, let them write each favorite thing down. If they are too young to do it independently, you can help guide their hand or even write down their answers yourself.

After the writing is done, encourage your child to draw a face on their caterpillar. The drawing can be as basic or as detailed as they’d like. If drawing isn’t your little one’s thing, you could use googly eyes or even a picture of them.

After the drawing is done, help your child cut out the head and each circle.

To finish up this easy activity, help your little one glue the caterpillar onto the construction paper.
