Caterpillar Soup

Here's a simple play idea that will cost you nothing & will help spark new conversations & learning experiences. Have you ever made caterpillar soup? Do caterpillars even like soup? ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฅฃ๐ŸŒฟ

Materials: Water Large bowl Smaller bowls & cups Spoon & ladle Whisk Foraged materials (leaves, sticks)

Play time: Arrange all bowls & spoons on a tray, your kitchen table or outdoors. Add water to your bowls & cups (I recommend you only fill it 1/4 so that there's room to add more water later). Take a bowl outside and forage for caterpillar food (leaves, sticks, even rocks! Anything that looks interesting ๐ŸŒฟ) Take it to your cooking station and ask your child to help feed all the caterpillars in the neighborhood by making a delicious caterpillar soup.

Let them pour, scoop & mix. When soup is done ask your child to pour a little bowl to all the hungry caterpillars. . Have fun!
