Book Activities for Wonderful Shoes by Emma Bowd and Tania McCartney
This 2022 CBCA Notable Early Childhood Book is a colourful look at different types of shoes young children enjoy clicking, clacking, stomping, gliding and tapping in. A lovely light hearted play on the idea that children do not need expensive toys to have fun they just need their parent’s shoes and a bit of imagination.
The team at Learn From Play have designed 4 fun activities for pre-school or kindergarten children to enjoy once they have had this book read to them. These are an activity to practice colours, matching and finding the odd one out, being able to describe objects and a basic handwriting tracing activity.
The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
