Mountain of Mittens didn't come in on time, so we just read the first two. I would normally have picked a different book to sub, but I was out Wed-Monday with a pair of sprained ankles!

Craft: Kitten with Mittens
The kitten "loses" the mittens...
and then "finds" them again.
This craft is a bit more "piecey" than I would normally do, as I like things the kids can do mostly on their own from start to finish, but the ability for the kids to retell the "Three Little Kittens" story with a prop outweighed the more "product" than "process" focus in my mind.
I first saw this craft on A Mommy's Adventures, but these pictures and the template are of my own creation.
