Yesterday we decided we were going to make some crayon resist mittens! They turned out so pretty we made them into some winter garland! I think it would be fabulous to make 20 of these for a holiday decoration. Kids of any age can paint the mittens as a craft and adults could cut them out to hang!
- White card stock paper
- White crayon
Start by having your child draw mitten shapes with a white crayon on a white piece of paper. To make it easier, use a mitten shape cookie cutter for them to trace! Have them make designs inside too such as lines, zig-zags, or squiggles!
Have them dip their paintbrush into different watercolors and paint the whole page. It was funny to see her do it because she didn't want the white crayon to show through so she was going over it 10 times lol!
Once the mittens are dry, cut them out and tape them to a piece of twine or string. We didn't have any tape at the time so we cut little strips of paper and glued it over the twine.
While she was doing her mittens, I tried experimenting with crayon resist stars! They turned out beautiful to hang up!
