There are so many fun activities to do with mittens 
1.  Matching mittens - cut out paper pairs of mittens using different colors and sizes.  Have your child match and count the pairs.  Talk about which ones are small, medium or large.  You can also practice rhyme.  "This mitten rhymes with mellow, can you find the _____ (yellow)."
2.  After matching, have them paint the mittens.  For kids who are older, you can talk about symmetry. 
3.  Read Three Little Kittens or The Mitten by Jan Bret
There are lots of ideas and activities on Jan Bret's website.
