Another inspired by Flannel Friday post — this idea originally came from Mary, but I know that Library Quine and Shawn have done some of their own as well. (And probably other people — apologies if I missed you! Leave a comment and I’ll edit the post!)
I used this set in “Snow” storytime (post upcoming, I promise!) to great success. I had 21 kids at this storytime, so I did wind up having to hand out both sets. I had kids come up as I called “green mitten with star” or “blue mitten with heart” and they found their matches. A lot of my young kids needed help with the clothespins, so I did that part for them.
As for the mitten template, I used an Ellison die-cut since I knew I would be making forty mittens! The shapes I just made in a Publisher document and printed them out so they were consistent.
