The Very Hungry Caterpillar is very big with our family. The baby shower for my first was done with this theme and both babies have had custom nurseries (thanks to my talented MIL). It was only fitting that Lex would have a Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday! :)
The caterpillar ate cherry pie, chocolate cake, and cupcakes, so we did too!
Activities / Games
Paint your own butterfly wings or caterpillar, crawl through fruit, and retelling of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Handmade felt food, leaves, butterflies, chrysalis (cocoon), and caterpillar for story retelling.
What People Ate
We ate everything the caterpillar ate, except in trying to minimize the really sweet stuff we changed a couple things. We made rollup sandwiches, cut them and put them on a stick to look like the lollipop. We also made "ice cream" by balling out melon adding some blueberries and scooping it into ice cream cones.
What People Drank
I had juicy juice boxes for the kids and water for the adults.
