Last year my grand daughter's favourite book was The Mitten.
I pulled it out again to see if the interest was still there.
To make it inviting I sewed some felt together to make this winter scene.
A soft, white mitten was sewn to the felt too.
I hid all the animals in the mitt.
The bear came out and said 'gr, gr'.
The fox was hard to take out because of his long tail.
The raccoon tried to climb into a tree then he went to the river to find a fish.
The animals explored the winter scene, walking on the snow, climbing in the trees, splashing in the water and hiding under a snow tunnel.
My grand daughter had fun playing but the interest isn't the same as last year and that's ok.
