This bright and colorful Paper Snowflake Mitten Lacing craft activity is a super fun winter project for preschool and kindergarten children and a great opportunity for them to practice their fine motor skills. Just perfect for a Winter-theme unit!
The Mitten 20th Anniversary Edition written by Jan Brett, is an adorable book to read to children on a cold winter day. And, there are so many wonderful activities to go along with the book, like this paper snowflake mitten lacing craft for kids!
So, what are you waiting for?? Let's make and lace Paper snowflake mittens for winter!
Craft items you will need:
- Construction paper
- Hole puncher
- Cotton balls
- White shoe lace or string
- Scotch tape
Have the children draw and cut out mittens from construction paper.
Using a hole puncher, have the children make 6 holes in the middle of their mittens, resembling a star-shape (1 at the top, 2 on each side, and 1 at the bottom).
Next, have the children turn the mittens over and insert the white shoe string through one of the holes on the side.
Once done, have the children scotch tape the white shoe string to the back of the mitten, securing it in place.
Using the white shoe string, have the children create an x-shape, crossing through the holes of each side (2 on each side)
Then, have the children insert the white shoe string through the hole at the top and string it underneath the x-shape, through to the hole at the bottom and secure it with scotch tape.
When complete, the children should have a snowflake design on their mittens!
Lastly, have the children glue cotton balls at the bottom of their mittens for decoration.
And, voila! The children have now practiced their fine motor skills with this Winter lacing craft project!
What an easy-to-make and fun Winter craft activity for preschool and kindergarten children!
