Free Hungry Caterpillar Printable

Seems like party season because I know so many people planning parties and especially birthdays!  I miss crafting and party planning,  so I have taken on a few projects from different parties to keep me busy.  

A few weeks back, Erin asked me to help her create printables for her son's 1st birthday party.  I am in love with the theme and will probably use it for Cindy's second birthday party [let the pinning begin]!  It has sentimental value for us too.  But the party theme is The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  Oh I just love it!  Because the book background is white, the printable was so easy to make, it took just a few minutes.   

Here is the caterpillar printable on my flickr account.  Just click actions and be sure to download the biggest size. You can print these from home or get them done at Staples.  Want a custom invitation?  Shoot me an email, I would love to come up with something for you. 


She is so adorable. Erin put them on little lollipops!  Aren't they precious?! [Thanks for emailing the picture Erin.]
I also created  a printable for all of the junk food available Here.



And then Cindy's favorite part of the book where the caterpillar eats through the fruit.  She just likes turning each of the little pages! Just click below:

 



And one where all the fruit is lined up RIGHT HERE
  
 Erin used them to make labels for the food!  I just love it!  


So, if you are planning a party or need these for a classroom activity, please feel free to use it and be sure to share what you did with it!! I love seeing the different ideas people come up with.  Thanks again Erin for sharing your pictures!

  6. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one book that I DON'T need more stuff for. However, your things are SO cute that I can't resist. I know I will use them somehow with my children or in the classroom. Thank you. :)

  7. I am so glad I found this on Pinterest! My daughter's 1st birthday party is next weekend and this is the theme I chose because I love the book and love promoting healthy eating. Printing these will definitely save me the work of having to scan the pages in the book. Thank you so much! :)

  9. Thank you so much for these! They are awesome! I plan to use these with my Speech/Language students as an interactive activity. I will use a green pipe cleaner as a catepillar to push through the holes I punch in the foods. I will also figure out some way to clip wings onto the catepillar to turn him into a butterfly!

  12. Hello all the way from Ireland ! Found your site on Google and was delighted to see a big picture of the hungry caterpillar as I am hosting a girly 6 year old birthday party and it has a butterfly theme. Even over here in Ireland, the hungry caterpillar book is famous and much loved by kids, my daughter included.
    I will have the picture of the caterpillar printed on cardstock and when the kids see their goody bags lined up,( we call favour bags, goody bags) and go outside to play, I will hide the bags and put the caterpillar cutout in their place with a note telling the kids that the caterpillar is very hungry as he's going to turn into a butterfly soon so he needs to eat lots of leaves, but he's tired of eating leaves and wants something tastier...like candies from their goody bags ! They had better hurry up and find their bags before the hungry caterpillar eats them all ! Nothing like a sense of panic to urge the kids on the treasure hunt !!
    So thank you for your bigger picture for our party. Lots of love from Ireland.

  22. Thanks so much! I am doing a K-ready summer school program and I turned your helpful printable pictures into a book for each kid, entitled "The Very Hungry _____________." Each page has this sentence: "__________ ate ___ apples (or whatever fruit it is)." I used your pictures to put the picture of the fruit under the sentence. The kids got to do a taste test as they wrote their names in for each fruit, and then counted and wrote that number. On the bottom of each page I put "Did I like it?" with a happy face and a sad face and then they circled which one applies to them. It took a while, but the kids loved it! Name writing, counting, number writing, and snack!

  26. Thank you so much. I'm also holding a Hungry Caterpillar themed birthday party for my son's first birthday. I used some of your images for a Hungry Caterpillar themed Bingo game. You can see it here:

    I'll probably also use some of your images to label the fruit at our party too.

    Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  27. These are lovely! Do you have the junk food available as individual files? I saw the food labels that Erin submitted and wanted to try that, but I seem to only be able to get it all in one file. Maybe I'm missing something!? Highly likely, but thought I would ask if there was a way I could download the foods individually.

  55. Hi, I just found your amazing resource on pin interest and would love to use this resource in my early childhood classroom. I am having trouble accessing the files to print and was wondering if it would be possible for you to email them to me. I was after individual images of the junk food, the leave and the fruit so i can create something similar to the one in your last image. I was also wondering if you had an image of the butterfly as well? Thanks in advance for sharing this amazing resource.
