“What a wonderful beautiful thing, to wiggle your toes.” ~ Dalton Trumbo
August 6th is National Wiggle Your Toes Day! Here are some tips that you can use to spoil yourself & some ways to share this day with your students.
I couldn’t find any information about how or why this unofficial day was started. I know as a teacher it’s a
good reminder that the summer is almost over! 🙁 This is the time to get in your last few mid-week days of sunshine, steal away to a nearby beach or just go to the park with your family. Of course, flip flops or bare feet are a necessity on this day!
To get this day started, you’ll need a great pedicure. I like that this pedicure from Ella Pretty Blog is thorough and has lots of products featured that you might like to try. However, one Sephora scrub that is featured is $20. Multiply that cost by all the different products you could use on one pedicure and this turns into an expensive DIY project! I like this pedicure mixture from While He Was Watching ESPN because it has simple, inexpensive ingredients that you can pick up at Wal-Mart.
If you are in the classroom already, here are some ideas that you can share with your kiddos:
1) Read Dr. Seuss’ Foot Book – click on the picture above to find it on Amazon
2) Make a Flip Flop Puppet
3) Listen to the Foot Book Song
4) Enter to win my new Flip Flop Facts game
It also includes a mini poster and a worksheet. I love using the idea of “flip-flopping” the addends to help kids understand the commutative property of addition. It’s fun and easily for them to visualize.
