Further Discussion:

This is a perfect winter craft for a classroom or preschool.  While the Jingle Bells are appropriate for ages 4 and up, you can have younger kids make mittens without the Jingle Bells.  The kids can practice tracing their hands as well as their cutting skills.  Use other colors of Fuzzy sticks and Poms, while encouraging the kids to decorate the mittens with their own designs.  The Fuzzy Sticks can also be coiled into flat discs that add another element to the project, just like our Black Cat Mask.  Hang the mittens as decorations in the classroom during the winter before sending them home with the kids.
