The Hungry Caterpillar

Download Activity Guide

These fruit and number blackline masters can be completed in a variety of ways for your Hungry Caterpillar game. Below are some hints and tips to help you get the most out of your blackline masters. These activities will equip children with important skills like colouring, cutting, gluing, folding, constructing and creative thinking.

  • Step 1Glue the template onto the construction foam.
  • Step 2Using a box knife, cut around the fruit, then cut out the centre. Please use caution when using a box knife.
  • Step 3Glue the end of the crepe streamer to the cut out foam, then proceed to wrap the crepe paper through the centre and around the edge.
  • Step 4Once you have finished wrapping, glue the end of the streamer down onto the already wrapped surface.
  • Step 5Once the fruit wrapping has been completed, apply the confetti using glue and a paint brush to the stems and leaves.
  • Step 6Colour each number disc with markers. Your Caterpillar game is now complete and ready to play!
