Many thanks to Valerie Spooner from Ladysmith for this fun guest post!
My storytime regulars LOVE Pete the Cat and I love easy to make props for retelling stories. After spending way too much time on Pinterest and not seeing anything I loved (anyone else hate toilet paper tubes??) I had a burst on inspiration and made this guy:
It’s affordable enough that the kids can make their own to take home, too!
- Yellow paper cups (Dollar Tree is great for these, or you can get them at Walmart)
- Buttons (I just used buttons I had on hand - I'm regretting not buying colorful buttons like in the story)
- Pete the cat coloring page, available at http://www.petethecatbooks.com/activities/rock-color-pete-cat/ (I just used his head and upper body and cut the rest off)
- Tape (to attach Pete’s head to the cup)
