Holes

caterpillar

  • Read "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle. Let the kids feel the holes with their fingers.
  • Punch holes with a hole puncher. They come in all sorts of shapes now!
  • Lacing Cards ... Cut the front panel from your kids favorite cereal boxes or fruit snacks. Hole punch around the edges or around one of the pictures (a large letter, spongebob, etc). Cut several lengths of yarn and wrap tape around one end to prevent fraying. Tie the other end to one of the holes. Let the kids lace the cards through the holes.
  • Cut a circle shape from heavy-duty aluminum foil. Give the kids a golf tee and a toy hammer. Place the foil circle on a piece of sturdy foam and tap the golf tee to make a hole. Tie a loop through one of the holes to hang in the window.

snack idea: bagels with holes in the middle and Swiss cheese!
