Preschool Storytime Ideas
Even with the convenience of Velcro, kids still need to learn to tie their shoes. For an activity for a shoe-themed storytime, display some tennis shoes that kids can use to practice tying a shoe. Also, photocopy a shoe outline on cardstock, and punch holes and lace a piece of yarn into the paper shoe for practice.
