Share a Story: Feet


In case you missed our Feet storytime this week, don't worry. Here are some of the fun stories and songs we shared, plus some extras to do your own stompy storytime at home.

From Storytime

A counting book featuring animals with different numbers of feet.



     (Wiggle a toe for each piggy, starting with the big toe)

    This little piggy went to market

    This little piggy stayed home

    This little piggy had roast beef

    And this little piggy had none

    And this little piggy cried, "Wee, Wee, Wee, Wee" all the way home

Pete the Cat gets into colorful adventures while out walking in his new white shoes.


THIS IS WHAT MY FEET CAN DO! (Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)

    Think of what your feet can do, feet can do, feet can do.

    Think of what your feet can do inside their socks and shoes.

    Can your feet go wiggle, wiggle, wiggle?

    Can your feet go wiggle, then stand up on those feet.

    Have your feet go tap, tap, tap; tap, tap, tap; tap, tap, tap.

    Have your feet go tap, tap, tap on a steady beat.

    Let one foot go hop, hop, hop; hop, hop, hop; hop, hop, hop.

    Let one foot go hop, hop, hop; hop, hop, hop, hop: stop.

    Make both feet go jump, jump; jump, jump; jump, jump.

    Make both feet go jump, jump; jump, one last big thump.

    Can your feet go tiptoe, tiptoe, tiptoe?

    Can your feet go tiptoe, quietly and then…

    Now your feet can sit down, sit down, sit down.

    Now your feet can sit down, we’re ready to begin.
