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.
