i thought it'd be fun to mAKe ouR oWN miTTeNS. sure, we have lots of sets floating around the house... but i'd never made them before. i figured if i was excited about it, Bear would be too!
i used some old felt that i had lying around and traced a mitten shape around Bear's hand on it using a pen. i went about 1"-1.5" bigger than his actual hand to allow for the glue and stretching spaces.
once i got them cut out, i offered up several things for him to decorate them with:
pom pom balls
he opted to just use the bingo markers...
((by the way, i got several different colors $1/piece at Dollar Tree
if you have one in your area, it's a great source for craft supplies))
do you see his little Barbie helper?? ((more on boys and Barbies later))
i used a thin line of glue around the outside of the mitten to seal them.
after they dried, Bear wore them around the house for quite a while! he thinks that they're the greatest thing to wear while he plays with his winter sensory bin.
