Mittens Drawing

You can’t get much simpler than using a mitten for symmetry and pattern drawing practice. The mitten shape makes it easy to draw the right and left hand, and provides an easy canvas for shapes and designs too. Add a little holiday color too, and you have a pretty work of art that offers some good drawing practice too.

If students like the look of snow in the background, here’s some help in making it stay nice and white. The trick is to not draw small circles with a pencil. It takes twice as long and will mostly likely still show when the drawing is done. The best thing to do is to draw lots of circles with the blue sky crayon, and then fill in around the circles when complete. It’s much faster and the circles stay bright and fresh looking.

Materials for Mittens Drawing

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
