Mitten Match


Read to children The Mitten by Alvin Tresselt. Then create paper mitten shapes in a variety of colors. Decorate pairs of them with matching patterns. Mix up the shapes in a box and let children work to match the pairs. Provide a large bed sheet and stuffed animals. Tell children the bed sheet is the mitten. Let children act out this Ukrainian folktale.
