Very Hungry Caterpillar coloring pages

I'm starting out our butterfly week with The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle.

Lest those of you with older kids despair, I will be including things as we go for older kids. Awesome things. You'll love them.

but first:

coloring page from the author's website at

My 2.5 year old, aka "The Shark," loved this one. He was able to tell me the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar just from this coloring page.

It's a detailed page, which would make it great for kids a little older, but the Shark was not dissuaded, as you can see:

These have a number, color, and fruit on each page.
Super cute and the Shark loved them.

I printed them by clicking on each one, dragging it to my desktop & then opening up in Preview to print.

I helped a little, yes. But we had fun.

One of the great things about Carle's book is that you can use it to teach art, science, counting, colors, nutrition, etc. I think that's why it has remained so popular for 40 years. 
Stay tuned for butterfly sandwiches!
