Imaginative Play Activity for Pete the Cat

This is going to take a little planning but don’t worry it will be worth it – if not check out our easy alternative below.

We’re getting creative and making our own Pete the Cat with his groovy buttons costume.

It’s a relatively easy DIY but if you don’t have the materials then why not create a Pete the Cat headband for your Preschooler to retell the story themselves this week.

Letter Learning with Pete the Cat

Pete the cat is hungry and this Letter Learning Activity is great fun to do this week.

Why not use bottle caps with buttons on and work on the letters your child knows and introduce others or even magnetic letters to feed Pete.

Pete the Cat Math Activity for Preschoolers

We’re counting with Pete the Cat and this simple button activity is great to do.

You can set it up on a tray and bring it out regularly – don’t limit yourself to just 4 groovy buttons though if your child is ready for more then set up some more to challenge them.

Cooking with Preschooler and Pete the Cat

We’re making Button Cookies – now this is sugar cookies don’t worry if like us you aren’t that great at them from scratch.

Use a packet, dough or if you have a recipe that you know works use that.

Pete the Cat Craft for Preschoolers

This week’s Craft is a STEAM craft and we’re making Music to use to sing along with Pete.

You can, of course, decorate your instrument or leave it as is.

More Pete the Cat Books for Preschoolers

There are lots of versions of Pete the Cat and we’ve chosen our 3 favourites that you could read anytime of the year. Some of the others are more seasonal and if your little ones like the character then throughout the year you could always include one in the book basket that week.
