How to make adorable Paper Mittens

Paper Mittens

A Sheet of 81/2x11 Paper
A crayon or pencil
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.

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
