Does your little one keep their mittens on??? Gavin hates them but now i fixed that problem
I saw these on babysteals twice but both times i missed them so I made my own... I took a snap up shirt and a pair of mittens, layed the mitten on the sleave so it was over lapping (and the hand of the mitt was in the right spot to wear it). I cut the sleave about 1/2 inch down from the top of the mitten then sewed the mitten to the shirt. Now when his teachers put his mitts on they do up a couple buttons on the shirt and then put on his coat.

It works wonders for Gavin and I wished I had made one for Logan when he was little so I thought I would share

****I used mitts that had zippers on the side (as long as you can get is good so it is easier to get his hand in once the shirt is on) and I used mitts that come up close to his elbow

Hope you don;t mind me sharing.. I can add a pic tomorrow as the shirt I leave a daycare

Mittens will stay on for about 30 seconds. I'm so not crafty, but would love to see what you made up! I have no idea how to keep mits on his big ole mits.

Teresa sucks her thumb in the car, so I haven't used them yet. For walking to school, they've stayed pretty warm in the bike trailer. But for when we play outside when it's cold, the kids all have mittens that go up a few inches past their wrist and then they are connected with arm through the sleeves (that way they don't get lost.

I almost bought those on baby steals, too! Max has been wearing his infant mittens from last year with no thumbs He hates them! But if I tuck them in his coat he can't get them off.

And that sounds so crafty I want to see pictures!

Tight fitting socks also work well on their hands.

I got Betsy a pair of mittens that go up a ways on her arm. Plus, they have the string that goes inside their coat, so it will be harder for them to fall off. Of course, based on the battle we had putting them on her tonight, I don't foresee her wearing them too often!
