Oh my, this month of December has really flown by. We’ve had a blast coming up with all of these fun Christmas printables for you and your kiddo for the YES! Christmas Activity Challenge.
There are so many fun and engaging Christmas activities and crafts you can still do in these last few days until Christmas. Try the Christmas Bingo Game, the Color by Number Christmas Fireplace, or this Gingerbread Man Playdoh Mat.
Today’s gift is perhaps a bit less Christmasy, but we wanted to give you some activities to do in the quiet days after Christmas. Those are always really special, aren’t they?
Make your Paper Mittens with our Template
We came up with this simple template for mittens which you can use for all kinds of crafts that your kids will just love.
Idea #1: Make Patterned Paper Mittens
The first option is to only use the templates we give you and make cute patterned paper mittens. First, cut out the mittens (you can print them on some cardstock, so they’re sturdier) and then cut out the different shapes we added on the second page of our printable.
Try out different patterns. This will help kids learn about shapes, colors (if you color cour shapes in) and also about patterns and pattern sequences.
Idea #2: Add Cotton Balls to your Mittens
I remember we used to do this when I was in primary school and I’m sure you did a similar craft at some point in your life. Begin the same way I described above and then glue some cotton balls onto the edges of the mittens. You can also add a string to connect the two mittens. Such fun.
Idea #3: Use it as a Coloring Page
If you’re pressed with time, you can simply use the template for mittens as a coloring page. Encourage your kiddo to come up with patterns to draw on the mittens and color everything in. A great quick go-to activity for winter days!
