The Mitten activities and crafts

Books by Jan Brett have been huge favorites in our house, especially her story The Mitten. The illustrations are simply amazing, and there are many activities that can be done to encourage learning as we read: sequencing, animal habitats, and so much more!

Each of our children has enjoyed The Mitten – whether a board books, a paperpack, or hardcover. Our copies have been so well-loved that we’ve purchased multiple copies. And I love it so much that it’s earned a permanent spot on our bookshelves – to read when we have kids visiting or the mood strikes.

Here is a collection of ideas and printables that you can use with your kids or classroom when reading The Mitten by Jan Brett.

    I was thrilled to see your post about The Mitten book. We just recently came across this book at one of our library visits and we LOVED it. We did a mitten lacing activity to go along with the book. The ideas you share here are great!
