Pete the Cat is one of my favorite book characters and I was really excited to host a Pete the Cat party at my library! This was an event where everyone who registered showed up (which NEVER happens).
We started off by reading Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes and Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin. I chose these two stories as the crafts and activities all centered around these books.
After the stories, I opened up our 4 stations. Everybody got to do everything, but it helps congestion to spread the kids out. At our first station, we made these awesome Pete the Cat headbands.
At our second station, we made Pete the Cat out of shapes.
At our third station, we added numbered button stickers to our yellow shirts.
Our fourth station was a Button Sorting Center.
We also have a Pete the Cat standee that we use for a lot of our school outreach visits. I brought him into the room and a lot of the parents were taking pictures of their kids with Pete.
The whole program lasted about 45 minutes. Everybody had a great time!
