Spring is in the air here in San Francisco, the flowers are blooming, and the days are getting gloriously longer. There’s much to celebrate, including a brand new line of personalized gifts for kids featuring everyone’s favorite spring critter, The Very Hungry Caterpillar™! The beloved artwork by Eric Carle is now available on lunchboxes, placemats, party invitations, thank you cards, and baby books customized with your child’s name and photo.
In honor of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day on Saturday, March 23, we’re throwing a party at our Metreon Store from 10am – 12pm. Kids will paint their very own sections in a Very Hungry Caterpillar community-made garland that will be strung throughout the store. Join us!
But if you can’t make it to San Francisco next weekend, we want to share some great ideas for a Very Hungry Caterpillar–themed Spring Celebration!
For your party, you can incorporate The Very Hungry Caterpillar into the invitations, food and decorations. Let your guests know that this is going to be The Very Hungry Caterpillar–themed party with your very own customized birthday invitations. You can add your child’s name and picture to the invite in three easy steps online, and preview your cards at MyChronicleBooks.com.
Once guests arrive, they can snack on The Very Hungry Caterpillar–themed foods. For those who want to provide healthy snacks, it is easy to make a caterpillar from apple slices and a small cheese wheel.
Or for those with more of a sweet tooth, these cake pops are perfect for a sweet bite.
To decorate for the party, you can make a Very Hungry Caterpillar out of balloons or get creative and make a caterpillar out of tissue paper fans.
Kids can wear their very own The Very Hungry Caterpillar themed hats,
make their own The Very Hungry Caterpillar out of an egg carton,
and play with The Very Hungry Caterpillar Lacing Cards.
For a new mom who loves The Very Hungry Caterpillar, you can customize a baby book with her little one’s name and picture. It will be a special keepsake that will be treasured for years to come!
And, the new baby will love these stroller cards.
