I am so excited to share The Very Hungry Caterpillar Tiny Tot Curriculum! This 2 week unit will begin on September 12th and will run alongside our Free Preschool Curriculum. Over the course of a school year, we will be exploring some of the most well-loved children’s books out there. My youngest daughter is currently 15 months old, so I wanted to create activities just for her. I am planning to do our Tot School curriculum next year when she is 2.
Everything that you could possibly need to know to participate with us is written in The Very Hungry Caterpillar Tiny Tot file, which can be downloaded for free at the end of this post. Below are the Supplies + Resources for The Very Hungry Caterpillar unit:

Target Age Range: 1-2 year olds – this does not mean children younger or older cannot participate, it just means that the stated range is where I focused when planning!

Other Optional Items
I wanted to share that we will be growing our own butterflies for this unit! If you decide to do this activity, I need to stress that you should WAIT TO ORDER the caterpillars until closer to the unit. Once you purchase them, they will be shipped and will arrive ready to begin their life cycle. They typically take two weeks to go from caterpillars to butterflies, so we are planning to order ours Labor Day week so that they arrive the weekend before the unit. You can view the kit here.
Below is The Very Hungry Caterpillar Tiny Tot file, which contains the details and activities that we will be using. Additional instructions and optional activities can be found on The Very Hungry Caterpillar Pinterest Board. If you have any questions, please leave them below or contact me. If you enjoy using our curriculum and you have a desire to say thank you, send me an email or a cup of coffee! Our resources will always remain free, but I love getting feedback and hearing about the ways in which our curriculum has blessed other families. We are so excited and hope to have you join us on September 12th!
