Counting Mittens

Since we have been talking about weather this month, we have also read/talked about clothing words (coat, hat, umbrella, mittens...).  I had these mitten stickers and thought I would make a "counting strip" because S is now saying "choo, choo, tree" (translation: one, two, three) as he points. 

Then yesterday during our toy library visit we ran across this activity pack:

The book is about a farmer searching for lost mittens for himself and the animals.  The "mittens" the kit came with are not the most attractive, but you could easily cut out paper or felt mittens to retell the story.  This book is also great for older children because it teachers odd (not a pair) and even (a pair) numbers.
