Mitten Drawing Game
You will design a mitten by rolling the die and collecting the different patterns required to create it. First, trace the mitten shape onto another sheet of heavy white drawing paper. Next, roll the die to select the first pattern from the first column and draw it in one of the areas of the mitten. Roll the die four more times, drawing each selected pattern in one of the other areas.
Using washable markers, outline everything. Be sure to outline large areas where they meet parts of the design. Dip a small brush in water and carefully smudge it in the marker lines to paint in the shapes. If you need to neatly add more “paint” to larger areas, smudge some marker on a scrap piece of paper and use that as a paint palette. Allow each area to dry slightly before moving on to a neighboring area of the design.
When dry, cut it out. If you’re short on time, design directly onto the print out from page 4 and color with dry media such as markers, crayons, and colored pencils.
Simply print out the game and picture directions back-to-back, give them dice, and watch them have fun creating their winter mittens. Once completed, use the writing prompts to connect literacy to your lesson.
