Buttons for Pete

This week at Kids Nook we told another groovy tale of Pete the Cat, our favorite cool cat. After learning about his faaaavorite shirt, and it’s four groovy buttons that keep getting away, we decided to help Pete find his buttons and never lose them again!

Once we gave Pete back his buttons, we thought it would be nice for us to make a him a Big Colorful Button! We used our paintbrushes…

Kids Nook Loves Pete the Cat!

Pete’s a pretty cool cat isn’t he? We sure think so, and so do our kids at Sensory Storytime! They loved Pete and his white shoes so much they decided to make some shoes of their own!

First they had to pick out their favorite colored “shoe strings” (made of colored spahgetti)/

Then they mixed the blueberries and strawberries together.

After that we painted our shoes to make some great designs!
