Product Description
Do your kiddos enjoy Pete the Cat stories? Mine do. One of their all-time favorites is “I Love My White Shoes”.

With that in mind, I wanted to make some sort of quickie craft that would help my students retell the story to their families.

While zipping around the Internet for inspiration, I found various painted hand print cats.
Love this keepsake idea, but with twenty, 4-year-olds in a class by myself, painting those energetic little hands and dealing with the mess, was not what I needed the first week of school.

So I came up with this trace and cut your hand print version. Kiddos can pick a partner and take turns tracing.

If you have little ones who aren’t that handy with a scissors yet, send the blue paper home with a note, to enlist the help of parents to trace, cut and return.

I’ve included a heart pattern that says: “This is the hand you used to hold when I was only _______ years old.”

Children write in their age, trim and glue it to their hand print paper, which says: “We read ‘I Love My White Shoes.’ Please ask me to tell you the story.”

I also drew a pattern for a cat head, which you can adjust in size.
Run these off on blue construction paper.

Children color, trim and glue to the right of their hand, which is the body of the cat.
Their thumb is the tail; the rest of their fingers are the cat’s legs.

Run the shoe pattern off on white, red, blue and brown paper.
Students get one of each color to trim and glue, so they can practice sequencing the colors of the story, then using their cat picture as a prompt to retell the tale to their family.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy making this keepsake cat craftivity.
