Heart Name Caterpillar!

Day 1 of the week - The theme this week is Valentines Day. The letters of the week are d, G, g the number of the week is 11.
Project/Learning Activity - Heart Name Caterpillar- I saw this craft on the website under the Valentines Day theme. Directions: I traced 1 larger heart on colored construction paper for each child. Then, I traced a smaller heart cookie cutter onto colored construction paper - enough for each letter in Connor and Lauren's names. (I used white, red and pink paper). Connor and Lauren cut out the hearts. Next, they created a pattern with the colored hearts, using the larger heart as the starting point. Then, they glued the hearts together - larger heart as the head and the smaller hearts for the caterpillars body. Next, they spelled out their names using foam letters and placed them on the large and smaller hearts (the first letter acts as the nose for the caterpillar). Then, they added curled,1 inch, red pipe cleaners on the back of the head with tape. Finally, they drew eyes (or googly eyes), and a mouth for the caterpillars face. Connor named his caterpillar Googly - and Lauren gave her caterpillar a kiss. This activity focused on patterns, names and cutting. Materials Needed - Red, white and pink construction paper, marker, glue stick, scissors, googly eyes (optional), foam letters, red pipe cleaner, tape
