Action for Children, the UK’s leading children’s charity, is hosting a “Giant Wiggle” challenge to raise money on Thurs March 20th. This is to coincide with The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day and to celebrate the 45th anniversary of our beloved children’s book by author Eric Carle.

The Giant Wiggle will encourage children’s centres across East Sussex to partake in the celebrations, and children will enjoy being part of giant conga lines. Other activities including mask decoration, fancy dress and nature walks, will be set up to develop your child’s imagination through storytelling & creativity.

This is an open event, and anyone can join in and host their own Giant Wiggle. Register here to partake, and you will be entered automatically into the exciting prize draw! The winner, chosen at random, will receive a special visit from The Very Hungry Caterpillar himself!

Runners up will receive a collection of The Very Hungry Caterpillar books, including a 45 Year anniversary board book, doodle book, pull-out pop-up book, little learning library and finger puppet book. Also in the mix is a statement Hungry Caterpillar mug and dinner set.

So get involved and join us to celebrate the 45th birthday of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. He’s expecting you!
