Mitten Art

I love art doing art projects with my class, and although we don't have an art teacher or a set time to do art, sometimes I just have to take some time out to let the kiddos enjoy making and creating. That is exactly what we did with this mitten art. I usually borrow my art ideas, and this idea I borrowed from Pinterest. You can find it here.



This project was very easy (which is exactly what I like), and the only supplies needed are construction paper, crayons, a mitten pattern (that I drew and copied), and a snowflake cutout for each student. The students simply traced the mitten pattern onto the blue construction paper. Then they outlined the mittens in white and filled in the mitten with a variety of shapes and patterns. We added a little glitter to the snowflake cutouts before the students glued them onto the mittens.
 
 
I love the creativity that the students had with the designs they drew! One key to this project is to press down when coloring and fill in completely.
 
 
This was a fun project that my students loved.
 
Have a blessed day!

  1. I love this! We have art once a week, but my kids LOVE to do art activities in class too! I'm going to steal this idea too! :) I'm going to try and find a picture book or some writing to go with it and put it in the hall next year! I have a filing cabinet where I have a folder with each month listed and if I find ideas I put them there so that I don't forget about them next year! Thanks so much for sharing!! I think your kids did an awesome job!

  3. So happy I found this. I'm going to try it with my kindergarteners this afternoon. What size paper did you use? 12 by 18 or 9 by 12?
