Mitten Lacing

This Mitten Lacing craft is a great way to celebrate the winter season. It will also help children practice their fine motor skills!

If you tie your mittens together they would make a cute tree ornament or winter wall decoration!

Level of Difficulty: Easy

Here's what you'll need...

• Construction paper or cardstock
• Scissors
• Hole punch
• Yarn or twine
• Masking tape
• Pencil

Here's how you make them...

1. On a piece of heavy paper trace around a pair of hands to make the mittens. Heavy paper like card stock is best, if you don't have any, cut your mittens from a paper plate.

2. Punch holes all the way around your mittens. Wrap a piece of masking tape around the end of your yarn (to make it easier to thread). Begin to lace around your mittens.

If you want to tie a bow on the bottom of your mittens start the lacing at the bottom.
