I hate to say it, but “Step aside, Suess! There’s a new cat in town, and instead of a hat, he’s wearin’ SHOES!”
Can’t think of a better way to kick off our summer session than with a romping rendition of Eric Litwin’s Pete the Cat.
After singin’ along with Pete, everyone got to show off their own shoes (great way to reinforce color identification, as each child shared the color of his or her shoes). Then, with help from the grown-ups as needed, each child traced and decorated his shoes and cut them out.
Then came the REAL fun…painting the piles of colors to “step” in!
Last, the kiddos placed their shoes in the colorful splashes, swirls, and piles of paint.
And what would an art class for tots and preschoolers be without at least one renegade who shunned the shoes altogether to do her own thing?
Like Pete the Cat says, “It’s ALL GOOD!” I like his CAT-titude!
