Now that the cold weather is here, I sat down and went through our belongings to sort through what to keep and what to throw. 

I quickly realized that just as you can make cute puppets and dolls out of socks, you can do the same using mittens! 

  • Gloves
  • Elastic band
  • Lentils/yellow peas/rice
  • Styrofoam balls
  • Sticks
  • Black permanent marker
  • Buttons
  • Optional: small items to use as props

Mitten Dolls 1

Fill the gloves with the dry pulse of your choice (I used rice). Be sure to fill in the thumb piece with rice as well! Stick the skewers into the Styrofoam balls

Mitten Dolls 2

Stick the chopsticks into the neck of the gloves. 
Now draw on their little person's head!
Mitten Dolls 3

Draw their faces, glue buttons on their clothes, and tape all sorts of objects to their hands.

These are presents for my family! I hope they like them as I haven't showed it to them yet! My favorite is the one in the brown dress...I might just keep it to myself!
