Winter coloring contest: We’re smitten with these mittens

Piles of colorful mittens brightened a cold, gray day for the coloring contest judges at The Spokesman-Review.

In the 0-4 category, Brooklyn Lindsley charmed with her cheerfully painted mitten. Brooklyn is 2 1/2 and lives in Cheney.

Berit Murphy Swayne and Mila Anderson both created festive drawings with markers on their mittens. Berit’s evoked a family holiday celebration, while Mila’s was a celebration of spring with flowers and bees. Both children are 4 and live in Spokane.

In the 5-7 age group, Brady Ridl upcycled some hair ties and other household objects for mitten decorations. Brady is 5 and lives in Cheney.

Lucia Kraft, 5, created an elegant Christmas tree design, and Madison Richardson, 7, adorned her mitten with a well-dressed llama. Both girls are from Spokane.

In the 8-12 age group, 11-year-old Jacob Leard, of Spokane, designed a mitten at least one of the judges said she’d wear.

Tekoa’s Mylee Vasquez, 12, was dreaming of a tropical Christmas – or maybe the day after – with Santa and the reindeer enjoying cocktails on the beach.

And Henry Jackson is ready to play snowball. He turned his mitten into a baseball mitt complete with leather lacing and a cotton ball snowball.

The winners will receive gift certificates to Mobius Children’s Museum.

Many thanks to all who entered the coloring contest. Entries will be on display at Mobius at River Park Square, 808 W. Main Ave.
