Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat Party Hat Hide and Seek Game

This is a fun interactive game which encourages vocabulary development, colour and pattern recognition and turn taking. Depending on the concepts you are trying to develop you can make the party hats using ether plain coloured fabric or patterned.

The cat is 9cm tall (3.5 inches)

First, talk about the party hats, highlighting colours and patterns and any distinguishing features.

Then, hide the cat underneath one of the party hats.

Then chant with the children:

Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat

Playing hide and seek.

Are you under the [colour or pattern] party hat?  

Let’s take a peek.

Children take turns guessing which party hat the cat is hiding under by identifying a party hat by colour or pattern and removing it to search underneath for the cat.

For example:

Are you under the pink party hat?

OR

Are you under the stripy party hat?

Inspired by: Piper Loves the Library

Five Little Neko Cats – Guest Post from Stephanie Stokes

I am so pleased to host a felt set created by Stephanie Stokes – Director at StoryTime Japan, from Pasadena, California who shared this Asian Themed Five Japanese Neko Cats. Stephanie also includes printable files so you can make your own  Neko Cats and a Five-Little-Neko-Cats-RHYME.

Five Little Neko Cats
5 little Neko cats playing near the door,
one ran inside and that left 4.
4 little Neko cats underneath a tree,
one heard a dog bark and that left 3.
3 little Neko cats wondering what to do,
one saw a little bird and that left 2.
2 little Neko cats sitting in the sun,
one ran to catch his tail and that left 1.
1 little Neko cat looking for some fun,
he saw a butterfly and then there ….. were none!
The maneki-neko (Japanese: 招き猫 ?
, literally “beckoning cat”) is a common
Japanese figurine (lucky charm, talisman) which is often believed to bring good
luck to the owner. In modern times, they are usually made of ceramic or plastic.

Balloons for a Party Felt Board Set

I played with words of the original Birthday Balloon rhyme (I just can’t leave well enough alone), and I used  lots of different synonyms for pretty – gorgeous, beautiful, bright, lovely and fine to extend vocabulary

 Here are balloons for a party
Because it’s my birthday today.
I have balloons for all of my friends
Who are coming over to play.

Here is a pretty blue balloon,

As blue as the summer skies.

And here is a bright red balloon,

The best that you can buy!

Here is a gorgeous yellow balloon,

As yellow as bright sunshine.

And here is a beautiful purple balloon,

Like purple grapes from a vine.

Here is a lovely orange balloon,

Like oranges from the store.

And here is a fine white balloon,

And now there are no more!

Five Scoops of Ice Cream

Five scoops of ice cream with sprinkles on top
I licked one scoop, and it went plop!

Four scoops of ice cream with sprinkles on top
I licked one scoop, and it went plop!

Three scoops of ice cream with sprinkles on top
I licked one scoop, and it went plop!

Two scoops of ice cream with sprinkles on top
I licked one scoop, and it went plop!

One scoop of ice cream with sprinkles on top
I licked one scoop, and it went plop!

No scoops of ice cream on my cone.
I’m still hungry, so I’m going home

These scoops are enormous – almost hand sized.

I found this rhyme on the King County Library System website
