How to make adorable Paper Mittens

January 9, 2012 / Crafts

Paper Mittens

Supplies:
A Sheet of 81/2×11 Paper
A crayon or pencil
Mitten
Scrap paper cut or torn into strips (great practice for child learning to use scissors!) Glue Stick Tape or Hole Punch Decorative paper

Step 1: Have child put on mitten and trace his or her hand
Step 2: Fold the paper in half and cut out mitten shape (this will give you two mittens).
Step 3:
  Glue strips of paper onto mitten shape.
Step 4:
  Turn over so you see the mitten shape again, and trim the strips.
Step 5:
Tape string or ribbon to the back of the mitten (or punch a hole on the cuff of the mitten and tie the string).

Repeat steps one through five with second mitten.

Notes:
Great way to use up leftover holiday wrapping and ribbon!

For extra embellishment add fancy buttons, or add a heart to the middle of a single mitten for a special homemade Valentine card!

Great winter story to read with small children afterward: “The Mitten” by Jan Brett
