Oopsy Daisy's Very Hungry Staff Celebrates Eric Carle's Very Hungry Caterpillar Day

Around here, we love a reason to celebrate. So, with Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day right around the corner (March 20) we had a picnic in honor of that little guy with all of his delicious favorites on the menu to feed our Very Hungry Staff! It was a Vegetarian lunch with foods mentioned in Eric Carle's beloved book, like cherry pie, lollipops, cup cakes, strawberries, apples, oranges, and all those types of delightful goodies.  To keep the presentation playful, all the grapes, cucumber slices and cupcakes were arranged in the shapes of caterpillars. We simply felt it was necessary to take every opportunity to honor The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day in all it's treasured glory, and keep it FUN.

While The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day is a perfect excuse to have an Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar themed party, it's also a perfect theme for any birthday party, summer party, back to school party, etc. ! The decor is bright and fun, it gives you incentive to serve your guests a healthier selection of party treats, and think of the fun games and activities you can put together!

Our activities included "Pin the Antennae on the Caterpillar" and "Create the Best PLAY-DOH Caterpillar" for prizes. It's fun to see the creativity of each participant with their supply of PLAY-DOH making big caterpillars, small caterpillars, flat, tall, and rainbow caterpillars! To pin an antenna on a caterpillar, we used one of our giclée canvas prints of Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar, cut out antennae shaped colorful papers adding a little tape, added a blindfold to the contestants, and voila! This is a simple and safe game that definitely got some laughs from our crew!

Lastly, our team challenge involved groups of employees gathering together to create tissue paper collage masterpieces inspired by Eric Carle's characteristic style. The results weren't quite as spectacular as The Master's, but we had a blast! The winners in this competition received a small army of caterpillars to care for while they mature (which is typically 7-10 days), at which time they get to release them as butterflies! The event was a hit, and we can't wait for the butterfly release.

Whether it's home décor or party décor, we are all about it! So, we had a great time getting crafty with party decorations, and our kids' wall décor line of Eric Carle artwork fit in perfectly wi15th the festivities.
