The Watford-based charity Action for Children is encouraging children’s centres, nurseries and groups for under-5s to host a “Giant Wiggle event” on The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day on March 20.

The day, celebrated annually, marks the start of the 45th anniversary celebration of the UK’s most read children’s book, and 2014 marks Action for Children’s 145th year.

The event will bring together children under five-years-old to wiggle along in giant caterpillar conga lines, encourage them to help others, and open up their imaginations through storytelling and creative activities.

Ruth Sorby, partnership fundraising manager at Action for Children, of Ascot Road, said: “What better way to celebrate the anniversary of Eric Carle’s beloved book than by getting kids active and having fun?

“By hosting a sponsored Giant Wiggle at your centre you’ll be helping us continue to support vulnerable children, young people and families in the heart of communities in Hertfordshire, and across the UK.”
