- Stretchy cheap colorful gloves – one per student
- Wiggly eyes
This is a craft idea for your Sunday School class or Wednesday night program when you have a hat and mitten drive during the winter. Everyone can donate mittens (hats, socks) to a local shelter and the kids in class can make a Mitten Monster to take home.
Kids can make these in a number of ways:
- The thumb can be folded in. Add eyes, nose, and a mouth. The face can be made with buttons, cut out of felt or glue on other embellishments.
- The gloves can be used with all five fingers out and turned upside down where the fingers represent hair.
- The gloves can be stuffed and sewn shut.
- Leave the glove open and insert that day’s Bible verse or a piece of candy.
