Such a simple way to create a story telling prop to accompany The Very Hungry Caterpillar book. Simply cover a Pringles tin with some plain paper, stick and cut out (or print out of the caterpillar on to the tin- if you want the caterpillar on pdf message me) and cut out a slot for the mouth big enough that you can post milk bottle caps in.
Stick pictures of each of the food items onto the milk caps (I drew mine but you could print out the ones below from TES you need to join but that's free)
It's not possible to see from the photos above, but I added a brown cocoon shape to back. When the caterpillar had ate all his food and slept for a while I opened the lid and pulled out a butterfly finger puppet I'd put in earlier.
Let me know if you make this I'd love to hear how it goes.
Post Edit: Due to several requests you can now DOWNLOAD the caterpillar and Cocoon
