This past week the boys had fun learning about winter in school. We talked about the different seasons and the fun things you can enjoy during each one. We read the book "The Mitten" and followed it up with this fun craft from January's Art Pack.
The Art Pack comes with 8 crafts for 4 kids each month. Here are the supplies for the Marvelous Mittens . Everything you need, including detailed instructions!
The boys traced their hands around their fingers to create their mittens.
Cutting and gluing, always a great fine motor activity for little ones.
My busy boys!
Baby N's Mittens. (he had help from mom)
Adding the finishing touches
The finished mittens displayed on our schoolroom wall.
Do you want to be build a snowman? (sorry, couldn't help it!)
Next we made some super fun snowman puppets.
I love how each snowman is so unique!
Although my boys have been wishing for snow to build a real snowman, these were a good substitute. They had a lot of fun and played with them all day. I hot glued everything together so they would not fall apart.
