We love celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Each year we spend a week doing activities with Dr. Seuss books, like this simple The Cat in the Hat Craft and our DIY Yertle the Turtle game. One of our favorite preschooler Dr. Seuss crafts is a craft for The Foot Book.
After reading The Foot Book and checking out all the crazy feet in the book, we decided to make some of our own.
Craft for The Foot Book
- Construction Paper
- Markers or Crayons
- Glitter Glue
- Feathers, Pom-Poms, and other small items that glue easily
Start by tracing both feet onto a piece of construction paper. Allow your child to decorate the feet however they’d like.
My preschooler dove right into the glitter glue, painting every surface. Then she added feathers to one foot and paper dots to the other. My toddler opted to use a little glitter glue on his feet and then place stickers all around them.
Once you finish your feet, display them for all to see!
After our feet dried we read the book again, this time I used our pictures to read the last couple pages of the book. The kids thought that was great.
Take it one step further and continue the fun with The Foot Book by looking at more feet — this time animal feet!
Use small plastic animals to make footprints in play dough. Compare how the feet look. Which animal footprints look similar? Who has hooves? Who has webbed feet?
When you finish your activity and craft for The Foot Book, be sure to check out some more awesome Dr. Seuss crafts.
