stART Project - The Mitten


One of our favorite books recently has been The Mitten by Jan Brett. I found this adorable printable from Jan Brett's website that we had so much fun with.

Bekah colored the animals and I cut them out.

After the animals were colored she wanted to color the mitten.

We used double sided tape to attach the sides and top of the mitten. Then, as I read the story Bekah would put the animals into the mitten.

She had so much fun with this craft!

We also had fun doing this mitten activity that I found at childcareland.com
It follows the Brown Bear, Brown Bear idea. I had Bekah call out what colors would come next and choose that color. For example, "Red Mitten, Red Mitten, what do you see?" "I see a yellow mitten looking at me..." and so on until all the mittens are looking at me.


You can see what others are doing for their stART project at A Mommy's Adventures.

  5. Nice craft. Bekah clearly likes to color. I can recommend another Jan Brett book that is just like Mitten but is set in Rainforest. It's called The Umbrella. We enjoyed reading it more than Mitten even though I still don't like quarreling animals.
