Hello everyone!

I thought i'd ask here, to see you if you think i'm barking or not!

Is a shoe theme a good idea?

I was thinking earlier about an activity i'd seen in a Penny Tassomi book about a 'shoe shop' role play. I thought of dozens of maths activties you could do with shoes and thought they'd keep the children entertained for hours. Then I thought, I could do a whole theme on shoes!

What do we think? Anyone got any shoe related activities?

its an idea! :D i like it :D

elves & the shoemaker story
visit a shoe shop and have feet measured
take some shoes to be re-heeled or something? and watch how!
foot painting/printing
making prints using different shoes/wellies etc
dancing in different types of shoes - tap/clog/ballet etc
shoes we wear for different activities - walking, riding, dancing, sunny days, wet days etc

as well as all the sorting/pairing/size/colour/number/fitting in boxes etc of shoes
