Share the Warmth

Welcome! New to ABC and 123? Please check out our FAQ in the sidebar.

Let's warm things up today with...

...a story about a mitten
Arts and Crofts put together a retelling activity using Jan Brett's The Mitten. Retelling demonstrates reader comprehension which is a necessary piece in becoming a successful reader.
ObSEUSSed put together a matching game using children's mittens to accompany the same story.

Little Wonders' Days put together kittens and mittens to act out the nursery rhyme.

...a cup of homemade cocoa
Here’s a favorite, easy & inexpensive, recipe for hot chocolate from The Frugal Homeschooling Mom.

Ten Kids and a Dog also shared a recipe for "the creamiest" hot chocolate.

Welcome to Our Wonderland also has a special homemade hot cocoa recipe to share.

...a scarf

Make and Takes shares a tutorial for making a fancy fringed fleece scarf.

A List Maker's Life explains a simple version of fleece scarf making that was do-able for her 4 and 6 year olds.
