Toddler Park Programs - The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

This is a toddler-friendly program. The October program will involve storytime. We'll read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, then we'll talk about a caterpillar/butterfly lifecycle with puppets and look at/hold real caterpillars if available. Afterward, we'll do a hungry caterpillar painting.

Guardian or parent involvement is necessary. These programs are appropriate for very young toddlers through kinder-aged children.
