Winter Projects
Mitten Hand Print
Cut a mitten from colored construction paper.  Add a cuff to the mitten using a different paper color.  Press painted hand onto the mitten.  Write your name on the cuff!

Hat Sun Catchers
Trace a winter hat template onto black construction paper. You will need two hat templates for each child.  Cut out the hat along the outside lines and inside lines.  Glue squares of tissue paper into the hat.  Glue or place the other hat template on top and laminate.  I placed the hats onto my open laminating pouch and glued the tissue paper squares on to it that way.  Then I closed the laminating pouch and laminated it.  You can also use Con-Tact paper - which is already sticky.
