Cats {Dress-up and Sock Kitty}

"I like cats!", Little One announced (some time last year). I giggled! For two reasons being that I was so surprised that at the tender age of two you can know with such certainty what you like, and also because we (husband and I) have always thought of ourselves more as a doggy family...should we get a pet.

Little One is still at home with me full-time this year and because he is a bright, busy little person and seeks constant stimulation (like most two-year-olds), I decided to introduce some mini themes to direct our craft and learning activities. Needless to say, when I was considering my first theme, I thought "Cats". So what follows in this and the next few posts, are all the cat-related activities that we got up to.

And while we have been playing "cats", it's been reading month in the United States and Polly from Helping Little Hands has had a fun Read-Along, where she has asked some bloggers to share a book-related activity. I have joined in the fun and am sharing this sweet sock cat, inspired by the fabulous little book, Katie the Kitten , by Alex Scheffler. We have a small box set, including four of his titles (to read about another one, see here), but Katie the Kitten has been Little One's all time favourite! 

"She loves nothing more 
    than a night on the prowl.
She doesn't get scared
 by a woof or a growl."

Do go along and check out some of the other fun reads and activities shared by other book-loving bloggers!

I always had a few "orphan" socks left around when my children were small. (Does the washing machine eat them? The dryer?) Sock kitties are the perfect solution. Great idea.
