Turn off the TV and tune into your own imagination. Enjoy each moment, allowing your creativity to unfold in the kitchen, craft space or in nature.
Kids will not be able to resist this Very Hungry Caterpillar creation that they can actually eat. It was inspired by the book by Eric Carle and is a fun and healthy way to serve lunch or maybe something fun at their next birthday party?
Very Hungry Caterpillar (VHC) for Lunch
: 10 minutes
: 0 minutes
: 1 -2 servings
8 slices of buttered bread
4 slices of cheese
4 slices of ham (optional)
2 lengths of celery
1 medium sized tomato
1 sharp knife
Ingredients for the VHC
Using a circular cookie cutter, make eight circle shapes in the buttered bread slices.
Cut circle in the bread
Add circular slices of cheese and ham.
Add cheese and ham
Line the bread up and cut the celery like this to make the caterpillar's eight "legs". These sturdy celery legs will also prevent the bread from rolling off the plate.
Cut the celery to make legs
Cut two small holes for the caterpillar's "eyes" and insert the sultanas, then cut two holes for the caterpillar's "antennae" and insert two smaller sticks of celery into these two holes.
Line up the bread
Add a smile shaped piece of cheese for the caterpillar's "mouth" and serve to your awaiting audience. Enjoy and have fun.
Make a tomato head
Enjoy eating you VHC
