This week we combined our Writing and Art Stations to make this wintery project. At the Writing stations students wrote an acrostic S N O W poem. We had lot of winter books for inspiration. I was impressed with their determination and imagination.
At the Art Station we started by mixing some white glue and shaving cream in a small cup. The kids stirred with a craft stick which was FUN.
Next the students "plopped" the mixture on small blue construction paper. They thought the "plop and spread" method was best. They spread a layer of snow across the bottom and then up the side to make the snowman.
The students added detail with hats, buttons and faces. They picked from fabric scraps for scarves. There really were over 4 choices of fabric but I must have liked the bones since that fabric is featured in all the photos. Sticks for arms of course.
