Our craft for the day was inspired by Amanda at Handprint and Footprint Art. I cutout some mitten patterns and we did handprints on them. On the backside, I wrote the last of our thank you notes.
We did a little mitten match up and pretend play...
If you thought we had a lot of hats, you'll probably think we have a lot of mittens and gloves too! I piled all of our mittens and gloves into a basket and let Juiciness and Sassyfras sort through them to find matches and try on different pairs.
This was good matching practice as well as good practical life skills to get the gloves/mittens on by themselves. A little side note...I leave their everyday mittens, hats, and shoes/boots in bins they can reach without assistance and their coats are on low hooks. This way they can help get themselves ready.
When they tired of this activity, I set them up with a snack and went to hide the mittens. We read The Missing Mitten Mystery by Steven Kellogg and then I showed them the empty basket. They loved having a mitten hunt!
