Macaroni Mittens

The Mitten - Colorful Macaroni
I love the story The Mitten by Jan Brett. Each year I read and act out this story. This year I wanted to change things up a bit and try something different. I used the mitten printable from the Jan Brett website. I printed the mittens on card stock, the kids cut the 2 mittens out, punched holes, and then laced together. All of this was for building fine motor practice. Then the next day we colored macaroni. I had purchased lots of different shapes of pasta. In small Ziploc bags we placed about 1/2 cup of macaroni. Then the kids added 3-6 drops of food coloring. I added a splash of hydrogen peroxide (I was not exact on measurement somewhere around 1 tsp.) We then closed the bags and shook everything together. Once the colors were mixed well I dumped everything out on wax paper or tinfoil until dry. Coloring the pasta was also a good experiment for the kids because we worked on mixing primary colors red, yellow, and blue together to create green, purple, and orange. Finally the next day the students glued their macaroni onto their mittens. I showed them my example which included patterns and designs. I then let them do what they wanted on their mitten. This was so much fun and once dry the kiddos wore their mittens home. You can find the printable of the mitten here: Macaroni Mittens Printable
