At one of my branches, the regular storytime day is Monday. We miss several storytimes because of bank holidays. Last fall I decided to make up for this by hosting a couple of special events on Friday mornings. The first I attempted was a Pete the Cat Party. Pinterest, a host of wonderful librarians (Meg, Kelsey, Lisa, Jane, and Jbrary), and the Make Learning Fun Pete the Cat theme page were instrumental to the planning of this event.
Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes and Find the Button).
After storytime, we played Pin the Shoe on Pete the Cat (from the publisher). The kids colored their shoes as they arrived.
Then it was craft time. We made Pete the Cat paper bag puppets. I enlarged Pete's head from a coloring sheet I found on Make Learning Fun.
As the kids left, I offered them a Pete the Cat coloring sheet and a Pete the Cat Sudoku sheet for the older siblings (Both from Make Learning Fun).
