Mitten Activities!

Tis the season...to bring out the mittens!

When I taught Kindergarten we did lots of fun mitten activities.

We did the 'Snowkey Pokey' 
{the winter version of the 'Hokey Pokey'}
A fun winter activity! Do the Snowky Pokey...that's what it's all about. FREE download. #kindergarten #winter #winteractivities #snow #freebies
