Bulletin Board: The Very Hungry Caterpillar


While searching around for a new idea for my "upcoming events" bulletin board, I came across some pins of the very hungry caterpillar. Then I found these awesome images of the caterpillar foods from kidzclub.com (they have tons of other printable book images too), which I printed on cardstock.

The caterpillar circles I made by printing on construction paper. This was a lot more difficult than I expected -- construction paper is 9x12, not 8.5x11, so I had to adjust my Publisher file, adjust the print settings, and adjust the settings on our printer itself. But I wanted the circles to be as big as possible.

The circles each list our library's open hours, plus any on-going programs (like storytime, movie night, and LEGO club). Then I had space to pin up mini-flyers advertising special events.

  1. This is an awesome bulletin board! I found it on Pinterest and used it to inspire an events board that I created for the children's library where I'm currently interning. Thanks for sharing - and if you're interested in seeing how mine turned out, it's at http://bookwormblurbs.booklikes.com/post/980058/very-hungry-caterpillar-events-board.
