Mitten Craft

Finally the cold weather has hit us!  A couple of months ago I picked up a package of foam mittens in the dollar section of Target and now seemed like the appropriate time to craft with them.

We are expecting some significant snow this upcoming weekend which will be our first snow storm of the season and the kids are beyond excited.  This craft was the perfect way to kick off the upcoming snow event!!

Here's what you'll need:
Foam mittens (or cut some out from paper)
Construction paper
Glue stick
Buttons, stickers or anything else to decorate your mittens

My 5 year old started off by gluing the mittens onto construction paper.  She used cotton and stars to decorate the mittens. Next, added more glue and poured on the glitter!  Voila, mitten craft complete!

You could hang it on the fridge, or like we did, use a suction cup and hang it on the back door!

Here are 2 other mitten crafts to try.....Bird Seed Mitten Tree paired with The Mitten Tree book.
And a lacing activity with mittens paired with the book, "The Mitten" by Jan Brett.
