We made 3 easy bug painting crafts after reading each book.
Very Hungry Catepillers: egg carton and pipe cleaners
Buzz the bee: yellow foam hearts, painters tape to make lines and the kids painted black on top of the yellow hearts.
Lady bugs: red dot paint on toilet paper rolls. Nothing fancy, just working with control and holding a round object while dot painting.
Ant puppets: 3 black construction paper circles, 6 legs, eyes, and glue on a paint stir stick.
Going on a Bug Hunt:
Spider Climb: at our playground
Best part of bug week…. Oreo dirt dessert! I just bought the chocolate pudding box and made it according to the easy set directions. Let it set for 5 mins and then mixed in 1 small tub of cool whip. We crunched up some Oreos and added gummy worms.
Very Quiet Cricket: we did 3 activities in 1 with these printed movement cards. Matching the cards to the book, sequencing, and then we used the cards to move and sound like the bugs from each page.
