Best Kids Parties: The Very Hungry Caterpillar

My Party: Iris & Sarah (Dighton, MA)

Books are one of our favorite party themes and especially when it's a much beloved book like this one. Jessie describes: Iris and Sarah ask me to read Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar every night, so it was easy to pick this as their theme for their big 3-year-old party!

We made most of the decorations ourselves, which was a lot of the fun and build-up of excitement. Guests got Very Hungry Pedicures and made Very Hungry Necklaces!

The challenge came in the form of rain, so we decorated our playroom, it was a lot of fun. The guests had plenty of activities to keep them busy, and at the end of the party, our little caterpillars became beautiful 3-year-olds!

Thanks Jessie! Readers, see more of this party at Education of Ours.
