Very Hungry Caterpillar Mobile. Hang 8" lanterns (1 red, 6 in two shades of green) with different lengths of fishing line. Use pipe cleaners for antennae, and construction paper for eyes and nose. Very cool in a children's library space.
We also read The Little Red Hen and did a little writing activity with it. We decided if we would help the little red hen, which I thought everyone would say yes, of course, but we had a few that refused to help. I absolutely LOVE this little girls response as to why she would not help the little red hen.
