Pete the Cat I love My White Shoes Cookies
When you’re ready to decorate, mix up a few bowls of colored icing. We always use Wilton gel icing colors because they are so bold and last forever. Mix a little into a bowl of royal icing with a toothpick and stir.
Now the fun begins!
Oh, the concentration! I gave the kids new paint brushes and we painted our shoes!
In the book, Pete is wearing his white shoes and walking along. He unfortunately comes upon a big pile of strawberries that he happens to step in. Pete, being the cool cat that he is, doesn’t fret. He goes with it and is pleased with the new shade of his shoes. A similar thing happens when Pete steps into a pile of blueberries and a mud puddle. To go along with Pete’s shoes in the book, we used red, blue, and brown icing.
It was pretty neat to see how each of the kids painted their shoes. It really matched their personalities!
When we get a Pete the Cat book, we usually end up reading it so much that we can recite the book. While we painted, we said the lines.
“I love my blue shoes, I love my blue shoes”.
