This Bernie Sanders Mitten Craft turns his mittens into a fun DIY while teaching kids how to thread and practice fine motor skills!

We’ve been loving the funny memes floating around of Bernie Sanders showing up everywhere sitting and wearing his now iconic mittens! There is even a Bernie Sanders crochet doll! We had to get in on the crafty action by making a fun kids craft. This funny Bernie Sanders Mitten Craft is a cute way for kid to practice threading while learning about current events.

What do I need to make this Cardboard Mitten craft? 

This is such an easy recycled craft using just cardboard and yarn to practice those fine motor skills! You’ll need sharp scissors and something like a stick to poke holes through (we used a wooden chopstick!), tape for the back and a blunt needle that can thread yarn (make sure it’s blunt and not sharp so safe for kids). 

We were inspired to thread yarn after seeing our friend Mummy and the Bears Instagram post featuring simple cardboard mittens. In our case, we covered the entire mitten with similar yarn colors as Bernie Sanders’ mittens in cream, light and dark brown. 

You can do an extension of this craft by even tracing your kids’ handprint and turning that into the mitten! If not just download our FREE printable mitten template down below in the craft instruction card.

  3. Use a blunt needle, thread yarn through. Make crisscross shapes like we did and follow along the pattern we made or make your own!
  4. Simply use tape behind the mittens to prevent loose strings from unraveling .
