    I used foam board and red, green, yellow, and purple poster board & pre-cut letters. Cut the shape of the mouth out then the other pieces and glued it together. We used plastic fruit to toss. Cost $3!

    I made this one also. I had the cupcakes already from a birthday set I got from the Eric Carle store. The caterpillar was a copy from my sons book that I enlarged and printed a staples. then I glued it together with the stuff I had from the other game. But you could enlarge the junk food page, print, and cut the pieces out. It would only cost a few $ then.

    Love love love your party! Looking to do a hungry caterpillar party for my daughter this year. Where did you get the party print outs and cups?

    Thank you! I had so much fun putting it together! I loved being able to use so many colors. I ordered the cups and the cupcake cutouts (used for one of the games) from the official Eric Carle site. I made everything else on my computer. You can find all kinds of hungry caterpillar images on the internet and put them together to make anything you want.

    I got the bug catchers at our local dollar store. His birthday is in the summer so they had a lot of outdoor "adventure" stuff like that.

    Thanks! I got the tablecloth at the dollar store. I made the food labels myself using different images I found on the internet.
