On the heels of a hands day with Veronika, today was all about feet… and those adorable piggy toes of course.
The idea, as with the day we devoted to hands, was to pick a body part and make it the focus for twenty-four hours. I recited a few nursery rhymes that feature feet (This Little Piggy is an obvious choice). I also sang ‘Clap Your Hands’, but made up verses about feet: stomp stomp stomp your feet; tip tip tippy toe; wiggle wiggle wiggle your toes etc.
I then pulled out a few stuffed animal friends to show her their feet.
It was fun to play with a clean pair of baby shoes!
We read books about feet, including Dr. Seuss’s classic The Foot Book…
…and one that focused on toes.
Finally, I pointed out feet to her wherever we saw them throughout the day. Look, mommy’s feet are in slippers!
