Sometimes the simplest activities are best.  The one we did today to go along with The Foot Book by Dr. Suess was a big hit with both my one year old and three year old.

We started by tracing our feet onto construction paper.

They wanted Mom to have a turn too.  Pay no attention to the huge, unpedicured feet.  Look at those sweet little heads instead.

 Then we cut out our footprints.

Next, we stuck them on the floor with a little piece of tape in a random pattern.  There were only about 40 fights about where to put them.

Then the really fun part.  We jumped across the room only touching the footprints and not the floor.

Lainey just ran back and forth totally disregarding the footprints, but she had a big smile on her face while she was doing it.
