Magic Color Scratch Mitten Christmas Ornaments
Fun and Easy
This product was very simple for my K - 3rd special needs class and they enjoyed creating their own designs! Definitely a hit!

A fun project - back by popular demand
We have used these for class parties several years in a row now. They're easy and fun, and the kids LOVE them - they've even asked for them again in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade!
A word of caution: not everyone understands the concept at first, and quite a few kids made mistakes, so be sure to order enough for everyone to have at least two.
They also tend to scratch off over time as they're stored, so be sure the kids/parents understand that they need to be wrapped and protected. We're tempted to try spraying them with something like hair spray to see if we can lock in the materials that aren't scratched off in order to preserve the art, but haven't tried that yet.

cute and easy craft to wind down a winter party for 1st graders
Used this craft as a wind down to the days activities after crafts and games. Students sat down and quietly colored the mittens and enjoyed seeing how each one turned out very different.

Art at its best!
letting any child express their creativity of the winter holidays in multiple colors. Great for a fine motor activity!

Need to be packaged with tissue paper of something between each "mitten"....Many came with scratches on them. Not a big deal for the little kids, but the older kids didn't like that some of the black was damaged.

Count was not correct
I was very disappointed to find out the count was not correct. The ad says 24 ornaments, I received 12 and my other similiar ornaments had incorrect count too.

They had so much fun
We had a christmas party for my office which included the kids this year. I had gottenthis with a few other games and toys. The kids were mostly under the age of 4, but with us supervising they seem to really like this project. They had fun and they were able to take it home at the end of the night. Out of the whole pack there was only one that was all scratched up before we got started so I was happy with that since we had more than enough of them.

Easy, Fun, Fast and Beautiful
We did these with a Webelos den as part of a service project for the residents at the assisted living community where we meet. I bought a variety of about a hundred (penguins, snow flakes and mittens). The boys (and parents) let their creativity flow. All were asking where I purchased and how long they'd take to ship. Once done the boys hung them all on the resident's doors - no two alike.
The only bummer to these magic color scratch items is that users must be extremely careful not to accidentally scratch unintended areas. For our home use (book markers and ornaments), I'm planning to modpodge over top and spray with clear sealer in hopes they will be permanently fixed and scratch proof. Otherwise -love them.
