This week our tot school activities will be mitten themed. If you missed our snowman themed tot school activities last week you may want to check them out. We had so much fun!
Tot school at our house happens throughout the day. Sometimes it happens when my toddler and I are alone while his big siblings are at preschool and 1st grade. Sometimes tot school happens while my 1st grader is doing his homework and my toddler is antsy and needs something to do!
When we do tot school we typically do a craft or activity, read a book, and have a themed snack. The goal is to have fun and learn a few things as well. Check out what we're up to this week below.
Mitten themed books we're reading:
The Mitten by Jan Brett
Three Little Kittens by Paul Galdone
Mitten Crafts & Activities
Here are some of the activities we are going to try this week! Last week I assigned an activity to each day of the week but we ended up only making it through Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday before the week caught up with us and we were exhausted. This next week we'll do our best to try all of them, but we'll see what happens.
