The Very Hungry Caterpillar

According to research from Nestle Cereals, 47% of children have munched on a creepy crawly at some point in their life and yet they still refuse to eat a plate of greens. Breakfast is the most important part of the day and my two will literally have 3 small bowls of cereal before they even think about getting dressed for school.


In ode to the massive cereal bug that has been created by Prudence Staite, made from a variety of Nestle cereals, we were sent some craft stuff and some Nestle cereal to make out own little creepy crawly creation.


We decided to go with one of our favourite books; The Very Hungry Caterpillar. He starts off by eating some rather yummy and very healthy fruits followed by a lot of junk that gave him a sore tummy.

First up we made a very hungry little caterpillar:


We used a green lolly stick for the body and stuck on the coloured pom-poms and a set of googly eyes using the glue. Isn't he cute?


He found three juicy plums! (Actually grapes cause I had no plums!) He gobbled them all up and then ate a full box of Nestle Golden Nuggets!


The empty box came in handy as we decided to use one side of the box to make some wings. Whilst we made those, the caterpillar went off to sleep in a cocoon. 


A purple lolly stick, some feathers, pink pipe cleaner and googly eyes later, a butterfly emerged from the cocoon and flew straight in to Miss C's hand. Isn't he a beautiful butterfly?


We received a box of goodies from Nestle for the purpose of this post. The opinions expressed are my own.
