The children had fun matching up the mittens, clipping them together, and setting the matched pairs in a wicker basket. Clothes pegs are always a hit here and they’re a great for developing fine motor skills (all that pinching and squeezing) and hand-eye co-ordination (holding the peg open and clipping two items together requires concentration!).
They also clipped the pegs to their fingers, to their clothing, and to edges of the baskets. I love these coloured plastic clips from the dollar store. They’re easier for little fingers to master than the wooden ones that I keep outside.
While the Hooligans worked away at their matching activity, I whipped up a batch of cinnamon-sugar french toast mittens for a wintery lunch.
Stay warm folks! Hope you’re getting some of this white stuff too, where-ever you are!
