stART - Runaway Mittens



It has been awhile since I posted a stART project but with my new blogging schedule I hope to a little more often!


Last week Madison and I read Runaway Mittens by Jean Rogers. Madison adored this story and asked to read it over and over again. Of course a story that got so much attention deserved it's own craft project too!

We went super simple and easy for this activity. I printed out mittens on a piece of cardstock and Maddie went wild with her crayons. We finished up with the hole punch and bit of yarn.

A perfect decoration for the Winter window we have going on!

Stop by A Mommy's Adventures for some other wonderful stART activities!

I have never read this book- your daughter's recommendation is making me run to the library and check it out (after I put on my mittens, of course...)!

This sounds like a cute book, and the finished project is great. My daughter would have never colored for so long. LOL.

Perfect! Maddie loves anything to do with mittens, so this would be a hit for sure.

How's preschool going?! Give us an update!! Is she having fun? Bringing home lots of crafts and projects? I want to hear! :)

We have a problem controlling the runaway mittens in our home. They are always getting lost.
