The very hairy caterpillar!

The children in childcare have been growing a very hairy caterpillar!

This was the process of growing the caterpillar:

The caterpillar is a stocking filled with soil and grass seed and then segregated to make it into a caterpillar shape. It’s fast growing and the children can see the progress every time they visit childcare. The children love to cut the caterpillars ‘hair’, taking turns during the morning. Watering the caterpillar with a spray bottle is also a favorite activity of the day.

Conversations are happening around what we need for things to grow.
