It is COLD!!!!!!!!!!
Winter has finally arrived 
which is great, because on my schedule 
today was mitten decorating, and I just have
not been in a winter kind of mood.
But now I am!

What you Need:
Contact paper
mitten cut out from construction paper
tissue paper

Have the children cut up some tissue paper
i had to cut up a lot of it since kids were so into doing it!

I have done this activity before with Ornaments  Apples and leaves
and I always gave them a piece of contact paper and then they would crinkle it or get it stuck to someone else paper and drop it on the floor, lots of drama!
So I decided to tape them to the wall (sticky part out!) stick a mitten on and let the kids fill in the mitten!
This was a HIT!!!  

here are two that i stuck on the window, and the little guys sticking on the tissue paper!
They caught on right away after they watched me stick a piece on!  
Of course seeing "babies" learning during project time, melts my heart!

They kept so busy!  

they were bummed were the tissue paper was gone and the mittens were filled!

We will definitely be doing this type of project again...

Here are our final products!

what types of things do you like to do with contact paper??
