Trace your children’s hands on paper with their fingers together with thumb sticking out. You end up with a mitten shape pattern that is the size of their hand.
Take this pattern and pin it to christmas-colored felt. Then cut around the pattern and you end up with a mitten. Decorate each mitten with glitter glue, fabric paints, little ribbon bows, or shapes cut out of felt and let them dry overnight.
While they are drying braid raffia into a clothesline and knot each end. Then take little clothespins and pin the mittens to the clothesline. Add little clothespins to each end to pin the whole ornament onto the tree.
