January Winter Theme - M is for Mitten: Marble Paint Mittens & Mitten Math

Book:
The Mitten Tree by Candace Christiansen


Activity: Marble Paint Mittens



Materials:
-Box w/lid
-paint
-mitten cut out
-marbles

Step 1: Tape the mitten cut-out into the box (to keep secure), place dabs of paint along the edge of the box and place a handful of marbles inside the box as well.


Step2: Close Lid or Seal Box and SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE! The Lil Divas LOVED this part! The more you shake the more paint you spread. You can always open the box to check on it & see if you would like to shake it up some more! :)





Step 3: Behold your unique Marble Painted Mitten!



Have Fun Shaking It Up!

Learning Fun: Mitten Math


This was an easy and simple math review. (Note: I used Mitten stickers from Oriental Trading)

For the Littlest Diva I kept it simple and numbered her paper from 1 to 5 (in order) and had her put the correct number of mittens:



Since this was a simple task for the Oldest Diva I put her numbers out of sequence (great test of number recognition) and had her do simple patterns. She came up with the patterns on her own.
