The Mitten is one of our favorite winter stories to share with our preschool children.  There are many versions of the story by different authors, and we’ve read them all!  We have several mitten activities to accompany these books that I would like to share with you today…

The Mitten is written in a way that it provides a wonderful opportunity for the children to re-tell, or act out, the story.  After reading our story during circle time, we invited the children to retell of their own version of the mitten

There are many skills to be gained from exploring math on a felt board, such as learning colors, patterning, counting, and adding.  Felt board mitten math is another great circle time activity…

Hanging mittens on a clothes line is great for building fine motor skills…

Another excellent way to encourage fine motor use is through weaving.  This mitten weaving activity is a fun and colorful way to get those little fingers working…


Painting with mittens is an excellent way to explore color and texture through creative art…


We paired a few of these activities with the book The Three Little Kittens.  It is another great book, especially if you are planning a whole unit on mittens!
