This week get ready to count. The more numbers you know the longer your caterpillar can grow.
The idea is very simple, help your children make their own paper caterpillar. Ask them to build as many body pieces as numbers they can count. But they cannot skip numbers. Get them to count by twos or by fours and suggest that they change the color of the pieces for each set.
At the end of this activity you will probably end up with a bunch of funny looking colored caterpillars, but what is more important, your kids will have practiced their numbers throughout the whole time.
