Even though it's not snowing outside- it certainly is snowing inside...our classroom that is...
Make your own snowman
white paper with 3 different size circles/ basket with black hole punched circles, scraps of brown, black, red, and orange paper (for the child to cut out his/her snowman accessories).
the children fold the square paper in fourths and cut out shapes to create these...
Painting with evergreens
blue construction paper cut in half, white paint, and a variety of evergreen stems. The children dip the evergreen into the white paint and dot on paper. The final results look like snowflakes!
Drawing your own snowflake
the children follow the sequence steps on how to draw a snowflake, then paint glue onto their lines, and sprinkle with snow (it's really sugar- but looks just like snow!)
I made this work using different snowflakes (found them online: made 1 large copy and 1 tiny copy of each), construction paper, and a laminater. The children use the magnifying glass to look at the tiny snowflakes and match them with the identical large snowflake.
Hopefully with all this 'snow' talk we will finally get some!
Oh and Happy Birthday Dr. MLK!
Have a great week <3
