Perhaps you’d like to try walking along like the Very Hungry Caterpillar. Lie down on the floor and then push yourself upwards with your arms keeping your back and legs straight and keeping your hands and feet firmly on the ground. (Short Pause) Now shuffle your feet forwards towards your hands but be careful or you might topple over. (Short Pause) Then move your hands forwards to straighten your body out again. It’s hard work isn’t it? No wonder he needed to eat all that food!
