Today Saskatchewan had its very first snowfall and even though it melted as soon as it hit the ground, I know that soon the ground will be covered for the next few months. I find winter pretty depressing and exhausting at times, but there are a few things I do like about it…Christmas, sledding and, this year, Sputtens!
Sputtens are adorable little mittens crossed with sock puppets so that kids can play as they’re keeping their hands warm. The brainchild of momtrepreneur Shanna, Sputtens were created when she was at her wit’s end trying to find mittens that didn’t fall off (or get pulled off) her little ones. After resorting to old ski socks in desperation and finding they stayed in place better than regular mittens, she refined the design to create mittens that were water resistant and fun to wear as well as functional!
