Caterpillar abc

I've been reading the Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle with the younger children. We needed an alphabet chart so the children got printing using an old lid and using red and green which seem to be favourite colours in the book.

 I thought that I had had the sense to take a photo of the printing process but apparently not.

 Some of the prints were a bit smudged but this made no difference.

Once the prints were dry, I wrote the alphabet in lower case: one letter per print. They were then cut out, ordered and laminated. The whole alphabet only took two laminating sheets- obviously more with a bigger lid.

The end result:
A simple, cheap alphabet poster.


  1. Oh that's funny. We've been making caterpillars too.

  2. I like the idea of using caterpillar's for spelling. My little daughter would like these too.

  3. Such a fun idea. I will have to try this with my kindergarten class. I am your newest follower :)


  4. I love this idea and it would make a great addition to my son's room.

    Thank you for linking to Tuesday Tots last week and hope to see you back again this week.

  5. Super simple and easy to do! Great idea!
