OPENING SONG: Can’t Wait to Celebrate


BOOK 1: Dog in Boots by Greg Gormley

Shoe Prints
Here’s one foot, here are two
Both are wearing “brand new” shoes
So you stand up, turn around,
Dance across the floor,
That’s what these new shoes are for!
You can change brand new to whatever sounds fun (ballet, mud-stomping, dinosaur, etc).

There are all kinds of shoes
For all kinds of feet,
To wear at home
Or out on the street.
There are boots for splashing
And sneakers for dashing.
There are slippers for napping,
And tap shoes for tapping,
There are cowboy boots for riding,
And ice skates for gliding.
But the best shoes of all
Are the ones that fit you
While you’re doing the thing
You like to do.
*This one makes a great flannel board.

This is What My Feet Can Do!
This is what my feet can do, feet can do, feet can do.

This is what my feet can do
Can you do it too

Let your feet go hop, hop, hop; hop, hop, hop; hop, hop, hop
Let your feet go hop, hop, hop
All around the room.

Make your feet go jump, jump, jump
Make your feet go jump, jump, jump
All around the room.

Can your feet go tiptoeing, tiptoeing, tiptoeing
Can your feet go tiptoeing
All around the room

Now your feet can sit right down,
Now your feet can sit right down,
Quietly, please.

SONG: BOOTS by Laurie Berkner from the album
The Best of the Laurie Berkner Band

Such a fun song to stomp around to šŸ™‚

FLANNEL: Pete the Cat!
We watched Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes and thenĀ sang itĀ again using flannel pieces. This helps with memory skills.. although most of the kids in the group LOVE Pete the Cat andĀ can recite it by heart šŸ™‚

I traced my Pete straight from the book cover and then made 4 pairs of shoes (only the white are pictured).


BOOK 2: Duck Sock Hop by Jane Kohuth
I switched it up with a cute sock book to end storytime šŸ™‚

CLOSING RHYME: Tickle the Clouds

CLOSING SONG: Skinnamarink

CRAFT: Animal Shoe Prints
This craft is too cute! It requires some patience from the toddlers but the finished product turned out better than expected! Parents trace their child’s foot then cut and glue on blue paper. Extra scrap paper is used as “neck” of giraffe or zebra. Have pre-cut short strands of black and brown yarn for the “mane”. So fun!
