Happy Easter, Pete the Cat!

Happy Easter, Pete the Cat!

Pete the Cat Easter Headband

I’ve instilled a love of Pete the Cat with all of the preschoolers in my tri-town area! They love him sooooo much, they’re singing his favorite song:

I love my white ears, I love my white ears, I love my white ears!

You can add lyrics to go with his white nose, and white tail.

Here’s a pdf to make your own: Bunny headband (Pete the cat extra) In addition to the pdf, you’ll need 3″ strips of construction paper to create the headband part. (If you want to be boring, you can create a Pete-free Bunny headband but what fun it that?!)

Happy Easter!

Pete the Cat’s Groovy Buttons

Pete and 4 buttons

I love Pete the Cat, and so do my storytimers. I was so inspired by all the FFs out there that made Pete stories, I decided to try my own. It took a little work (and help from my husband!) but it was well worth the effort. Here’s how:

I found a Creatology felt set on clearance at Michael’s, so I bought it to sacrifice for Pete. (You can cover a piece of cardboard in dark blue to get the same effect.) I cut out yellow felt and hot glued it to Pete for his shirt (don’t forget to leave a triangle piece that comes off to show his belly button). I used white, yellow, and black paint to put the finishing touches on him.

My husband drilled four holes and cut a slit for each rubber band to fit into.

I also found 4 colorful buttons at the craft store and threaded them with rubber bands, leaving a piece to fit into the slit.

Time Part of song
0:20-0:30 4 buttons  
1:01-1:12 3 buttons  
1:44-1:53 2 buttons  
2:24-2:34 1 buttons  
3:16-3:30 belly button  

Here’s a Pete the Cat Buttons Craft to use with the story. You can find self-adhesive buttons through Oriental Trading.com (you get 800 for $10.50), or you can use Dot Markers or circle stickers.

Pete the Cat has exploded in Flannel Friday World, and I’m hoping on the bandwagon! The song that accompanies this book is so catchy, I sing it all day long! I made a flannel board to use for this story, and I edited the songs to use with it. Here are the time stamps for each shoe song:

Time Part of song
