Walk a Mile in My Shoes

This conversation/game with your young child will help them explore the nexus of fashion and purpose.

Cut out pictures of different kinds of shoes with your child. Put the pictures (or just the words) in a stack on the table. Boots. Sneakers. Fuzzy Slippers. Horseshoes. Sandals. Cowboy boots. Flippers. Cast (like a broken foot). Mocassins. Clown shoes. Elf shoes. Baby shoes. Ballet. Ski boots. Work boots. High heels. Snowshoes. Wooden shoes. Other ideas?

Take turns turning over a card and acting out what wearing them would look like. See if they can guess.
