Painted mittens.

Paint the mittens using watercolor or acrylic paint. This is a simple activity for kids. I know my kid loves painting and it is easy for kids to do with a template. Paint it, let it dry, and cut out the mittens.

Cotton Ball Mittens

Either coloring in the template or trace it on construction paper or foam paper. Have kids glue cotton balls on to the bottom of the mitten template with white glue. You can then attach a pair of mittens with a piece of yarn.

Mitten Coloring Sheet


Coloring is such an easy activity with kids. Let them color their mittens in their own designs. This helps kids use their creativity. For younger kids the large mittens are such a simple coloring sheet to work on staying in the lines.

Mitten Sun Catchers


Cut out the outline leaving the center blank. Put it on a piece of contact paper. Then have kids add small pieces of tissue paper to the center of the mitten. Once they are done add another piece of contact paper facing down to the top of the sun catcher. Cut off the extra contact paper around the edges of the outline. Then hang up your sun catchers in the window for the light to shine through.
