Five Warm Mittens
How we did it:
- construction paper - all colors
- glue - either Elmer's or glue stick
- cardboard (from a cereal box) - enough to make one mitten stencil
Cut out a mitten shape from an empty cardboard box. Trace the mitten onto 5 different colors of construction paper and cut them out.
Cut out various shapes of paper, like circles, zig-zags, stripes and more. Allow your child to glue them onto the mittens. Older children can cut out their own shapes.
Once the mittens are done and have had time to dry, use them with this rhyme created by the writer of Boy Mama Teacher Mama:
5 Warm Mittens
Five warm mittens hanging on the line.
First one said, "We sure look fine."
Second one said, "It sure is cold."
Third one said, "I am getting old."
Fourth one said, "I hear someone near."
Fifth one said, "Soon we will be warm--there's nothing to fear!"
Then "pluck" went the mittens and in through the door and 5 little mittens were hanging no more.
