We have been reading The Snowy Day as part of our Before FIAR curriculum, so I thought this might be a fun go-along book to read. I have never read this book before, and I have seen a lot of mom's on the blogosphere reading it to their children. Well the boys loved this story and so did I!
Mitten Matching Game
I came up with a fun game for my tot Lil D to play, and Big D enjoyed it too! We played a mitten matching game with a pile of mittens from the coat closet.(After searching for matching mittens, I realized I need to clean out the closet!) After the mittens were matched they used clothespins to hang the mittens.
Here are some pictures of their fun time...
I strung up some string and let the boys try their hand at using a clothespin.
Big D was so funny as he tried to open the pin, just look at his mouth.
Using the clothespins was a little harder for Lil D.

Come back soon to check out our row of The Snowy Day.
Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear from you!
