Mitten Matching Color Game

Cut mitten shapes out of the felt, craft foam or cardboard. Two of each color. (Find a template HERE) Attach a string to anything that will give you a “washing line” effect. We used an old computer stand, but one can simply use two chairs.

Time to play!

Roll the dice. Find the color peg that the dice landed on. Also find the color mittens. “Hang” up the mittens. See how quickly you can get all the mittens on the “washing line”. Individual players can time themselves and try to beat their previous time. If more than one child plays, and does well with competitive games, they can try to beat each other.
