We love celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
Each March we have fun with different Dr. Seuss crafts & activities inspired by his colorful and fun books.
One of our favorite preschooler Dr. Seuss crafts is this 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 with this craft.
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. You can go in between the toes or not, depending on how ticklish your child is and their preferences.
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.
Just like the zany feet in the book, they will all turn out as unique as your child.
Once you finish your feet craft, you can use them as you re-read The Foot Book to your child. (Mine thought it was great that I used their pictures when I read the last couple pages.)
Then be sure to display your colorful toes for all to see.
Activity for The Foot Book
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, then compare how the feet look.
Which animal footprints look similar? Who has hooves? Who has webbed feet?
