Here’s What You Need
Here’s your Preschool Mitten Craft supply list (This post contains affiliate links to the products mentioned. Read my disclosure policy for more information):
- Free Mitten Craft Printable <— Get it Here!
- colored copy paper, colored cardstock, or construction paper
- glue sticks
- optional: stickers and markers to decorate the mitten
Step 1: Download and Print the Free Mitten Craft Template
Download the Free Mitten Craft Printable. In the next step, learn how to quickly cut out as many shapes as you need.
Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Craft Shapes
Once you have the mitten template printed out, staple it to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.
Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Step 3: How to Assemble
The kids will have so much fun making and customizing their mittens!
I recommend having a mitten craft that is already put together so the children can see what the final version will look like.
- start with the large mitten shape
- glue on construction paper designs
- optional: draw or color on your mitten to personalize it even more
- don’t forget to write your name on the back
And you’re done!!
This is such a fun and simple winter craft for kids. These paper mittens are easy enough for preschool, elementary, Scouts or just a fun craft at home idea.
