Colorful Snowman

I love our colorful snowmen that were inspired by this poem that I saw on Mrs. Lee's blog:

We started by coloring coffee filters with drops of liquid water colors. The kids LOVED seeing the colors spread and blend (and it was good fine motor practice using the eye droppers).

When the filters had dried we glued them together and added details with permanent markers and stickers.  The snowmen look beautiful in the windows (from both the inside and outside!). Make sure you use glue sticks, I used white glue first and it changed the colors and looked really messy even when it dried).

We have other snowmen in our room.  These are our name snowmen.

This is our snowman poem.  The kids are doing such a great job recognizing some words and using clues to figure out others.


These simple Pinterest inspired snowmen are made with egg cartons, yarn, pipe cleaners and buttons.

    When you get a chance, read my current post. I posted about the ABC line my students made and how I got the idea from your post about your art themed ABC line your kids made.

  4. I've been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It's
    pretty value enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will probably be a lot more useful
    than ever before.
