Felt Mitten Puppets
I traced a mitten onto felt, and hand stitched it together. These felt puppets were very simple to make. When making, just make sure to add width to the mitten because unlike a typical mitten, the felt doesn't stretch. I think I will make some for my older daughter too, and let her cut out and glue on facial features.
We also did a painting activity made with flour, water and food coloring. After searching online I found a recipe for baby safe "paint". It is completely safe for them to eat, however, judging from the look on my daughter's face it doesn't taste very good! The recipe calls for: 2 cups of flour, mixed with cold water until a paste is formed-free of large lumps. Thin to desired consistency with hot water. Divide into bowls and add food coloring. Very simple. I will say it is pretty wet on the paper and should be cleaned up before drying. Messy- but fun!
