When it is cold outside, there are several items we need to remember to wear. “The Mitten Song” helps participants identify what they need to wear on their hands, feet, body, and head before they go outside in the winter. Make sure you bundle up to stay warm!
“The Mitten Song” provides opportunities to address these objectives:
- Increase self-care skills
- Improve understanding of clothing routines during cold weather
- Improve object identification
- Increase fine motor skills
Pairing the lyrics with visuals can improve children’s object identification skills. Encourage them to verbally identify the object on each visual. Or better yet, practice with their actual cold weather gear!
