Sing a Song
Puttin' on Mittens
(Tune: "The Farmer in the Dell")
The Thumb in the Thumb place
Fingers all together
This is the song we sing
When it is mitten weather
Sesame Street: Bert is All Dressed Up for Winter
Help your child practice zipping his or her coat, then take a walk. You can start zipper practice with the coat off. Stringing beads or dropping buttons in a container with a slit can help a child develop fine motor skills.
