I probably should have just made one big mitten post!
but I didn't
so you get 2 mitten post,
and possibly another next week!
Today we worked on lacing
I pre cut some mittens,
punched some holes
tied a piece of yarn to the mitten
rolled a piece of tape to the end of the yarn for a sturdy "needle"
The kids then "sewed" their mitten
I decided I haven't been doing a good job in this area since the kids really struggled
so this will be a monthly activity!
After we got done "sewing"
we took a short play break and then came back for ROUND 2 of projects!
The kids got to decorate hats (that i free handed)
here are the kids pretending to wear their stocking hats!
here they are decorating them
We then put hand prints on our mittens and I strung them together for a "winter mobile"!
and here you have another mitten post!!
Now that we actually have to wear mittens/gloves
we talk a lot more about it!!
and Happy Weekend!!
