Retelling of the Mitten: a large mitten shape made out of tape on the floor. Instead of animals, we had children climbing in our mitten to keep warm… As the story went along, each child was invited to climb into the mitten and since our mitten was getting full, the children had to adjust how they sat so they would all fit inside… And at the end of our story, all the children were thrown out of the mitten because someone gave a big sneeze! Only our mitten didn't fall apart.
