In our amazing body series at Toddler Group we are thinking about our feet. Here’s a craft and song ideas to use with under fives that are all about feet. Our focus Bible verse is Psalm 139:14.
In the story time we used our feet to jump, stand, run on the spot, walk and tiptoe. It was a very active few minutes. We counted our feet and wriggled our toes. You could count toes depending on whether you want everyone to take their shoes off!
‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’, – which is the theme song for this series about our amazing bodies.
Rhyme, ‘I wiggle my fingers, I wiggle my toes. I wiggle my shoulders, I wiggle my nose. There are no wiggles left in me, and I’m as still, as still can be.’
‘The Grand Old Duke of York’ has lots of marching on the spot.
A great rhyme for a parent/carer to with with their young child/baby is ‘This little piggy’. Here’s a link to the rhyme.
For this craft provide an outline of feet on A4 card or paper. The children can colour with wax crayons and glue tissue paper and shiny shapes – we used up some craft supplies so you can see tulips and flowers!
If you want the children can take off their shoes and an adult draw around their feet.
