We dug out a few of Eva's outgrown mittens for this fun craft. First, Eva chose three different paint colors- pink, purple and turquoise- and I poured a little of each on small plates. Eva then pulled on a mitten, dipped her hand in the paint and stamped onto a sheet of paper.
We sang a favorite winter song while painting too:
The Mitten Song
Thumb in the thumb hole,
Fingers all together
This is the song
We sing in mitten weather!
That is a great idea! I've got some outgrown gloves I can't donate because they are not a pair...adding this to my to-do list, thanks!ReplyDelete

This is also a great idea for kids who might be resistant to getting their hands messy due to sensory issues.ReplyDelete
