❄️Winter Mittens Handprint Craft

Be creative! It’s not just a coloring page. Here are some alternative ways to use the mittens template:

Coloring the Page: Let your kids color the mittens template.

Handprints: Add handprints inside the mittens with tempera paint.

Collage with Tissue Paper Squares: Get creative with colorful tissue paper squares, to make vibrant and textured art. Add cotton ball “fur” to trim the mittens.

Add glitter: Glitter is always fun and gives the snow a sparkle! When you’re done coloring or painting, add some sparkly glitter. We added sequins and gems to our mittens for decoration.

Fingerpaint the Page: Go for simple process art and let your little ones fingerpaint the mittens coloring page. It’s a sensory delight that’s both fun and sensory-based. To avoid a muddy-colored mess, I’d suggest having the children paint with one color and let it dry. Then, add additional colors. Or add colorful touches with fingerprints or pom poms. Ink pads also work well for fingerprint art.

Paint with Watercolors: Explore the world of watercolors and watch as the mittens template comes to life. I especially like liquid watercolors.

Make a Card: Turn it into a card by printing 2 on a page. Fold a piece of construction paper in half and glue the mittens page to the front. You can also make a full-page card by gluing it to a piece of colored cardstock or construction paper.

Help your kids write heartfelt messages inside and decorate the exterior with stickers, glitter, or drawings. These handmade cards make thoughtful gifts for grandparents or friends, adding a personal touch to any occasion.

Loved the candy cane printout we added red glitter paper as a whole classroom.
