It has been really cold this week and mittens have been on my mind.
I wanted to share with you these wonderful mittens my colleague received from her boyfriend's mother for Christmas.
If you are the non-knitting sort, you also have crafty options - think newsprint. My sister spotted this idea on Wintertime Activities for Kids which has a number of wintertime crafts. One of them is a little potato print garland inspired by this post on Two Straight Lines.
If you want a book to accompany the activity, my sister recommends Stephen Kellogg's The Missing Mitten Mystery.
Easy peasy and looks great.
Keep warm and have a lovely weekend. If you are looking for more crafting with kids ideas check out
