Mitten Beanbag Craft for Kids

Beanbag Buddies


  1. Old mitten
  2. Felt and fabric pieces
  3. Glue (for attaching fabric)
  4. Dried beans or rice


Decorate mitten with cutout shapes from felt and fabric pieces. Mitten can be made to look like an animal, person, or abstract design. Glue felt or fabric shapes on securely. Fill the mitten with a handful of dried beans or rice. Have an adult stitch up the opening of the glove so that none of the beans or rice can escape. Bean bag buddies can be cuddled, tossed, or played with.
