 The Mitten

by Jan Brett


Karen’s short + long of it with P.L.A.Y.ful story preview & P.L.A.Y.-filled activity adventure suggestions.


P.L.A.Y.ful story preview (short):

See How A Story Can Stre-e-etch and Keep You In Stitches!

Elbow Room for Everyone

A Winter Wonder P.L.A.Y.scape

P.L.A.Y.-filled activity adventure suggestions (long):

  • Challenge: Set-up a tent in your backyard or make a fort in the woods and guess how many people can fit. Test your theory!
  • Super Challenge: Have you ever worn something with stitches and watched it stretch and then shrink back when you wash it? Try knitting or crocheting a square to see how the mitten really could expand and if you can help it retain the original shape by washing it.
  • Super-Duper Challenge: Knit a mitten and see how many stones can fit inside and at what point can it no longer expand and will it really go back to the original shape once it has been stretched.

Capkins LOVE to be read to – especially P.L.A.Y.-filled nature themed story books!
