The Mitten

This week's literature project:  The Mitten by Jan Brett

First, I printed out cute coloring pages from her site here.

Then, we made our mittens.  I wanted something with some texture, and more durable than plain paper.  I had a bunch of shelf liner here, and I thought it would be an easier way for them to sew than using fabric.  It worked perfectly!

Once the colored the animals, they cut them out and could use them to retell the story with their own mitten.   They turned out very cute... and everyone got to sew too :-)
