It’s that time of the year when gloves and mittens start migrating to far away places. Sometimes they return but often they’re gone for good. When they return we gladly welcome them but we’ll never know about the adventures they’ve had without us. If a single doesn’t return its’ mate is often abandoned at the bottom of a drawer or the back of a closet.
Here are a few suggestions for how to utilize those neglected singles; and give some thought to those single socks and earrings too while you’re at it.
1 – Glove Monsters!!! – Get the tutorial here: http://www.craftaholicsanonymous.net/how-to-make-glove-monsters-tutorial
2 – Glove Puppets – http://www.canadianfamily.ca/activities/crafts/8-crafts-to-make-with-stray-mittens-and-gloves/slide/winter-glove-puppets/
3 – Use single stud earrings as push pins on a bulletin board or as magnets
4 – Use single socks or gloves to make a DIY velcro ball catch game. Get the idea here: https://mommyemu.wordpress.com/2013/04/28/top-5-fun-childrens-activities-for-screen-free-week/
5 – Single socks can also be used as golf club covers, covers for shoes when you’re traveling, a drink cozy, or to protect fragile holiday ornaments when you take down your decorations.
With all these ideas those singles will never be forgotten again. Cheers!
