[learn] green grass and growing caterpillars

Here is a little break from the pumpkin barrage.  We squeezed in a little learning in all our fall fun and it was all about the letter 'G'.  That and cutting up things.  We started with  The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

The girls loved the story and were excited making their own pom pom caterpillars and paper leaves for them to eat inspired by these invites via Pottery Barn Kids.  

Next we started on our What's Growing in the Grass activity sheet.  Jack took right to the cutting, the girls weren't quite as effective.  It was more of an earth's crust being forced out from under the girls bugs rather than hiding in the nice tall grass.  

Last but not least, butterflies to fly above our grass cupcakes.  Maddie never lets me get a photo of the cupcakes before she digs in so use your imagination.  They were inspired by these found via Pinterest.  

Now for the next lesson on the letter 'H'.  Oh, and isn't it convenient that it's just about Halloween?
