Snowman Art

I know it's been a while, but I have thought of you often, believe me. I am going to get right down to it. We just made this snowman. We make it every year, it is one of my favourite Art activities. I found it on Pinterest a few years ago.
After all my kids are finished and I display the snowmen or "snowmans" if you're a first grader on my bulletin board, it looks lovely. It's so easy to do! Here are my kids in action.

All you need is background paper (I used blue), snowman pattern, click here, some glitter glue or just plain glitter and pieces of felt. Follow the pattern, the scarf goes around the snowman's neck in 2 strips. I get my kids to create a pattern with the felt pieces. We use the glitter glue to make fun snowflakes, but there are many other things you could use for the snow. One year, I just had my kids draw snowflakes with white wax crayons.

If you are a Pre K Or K teacher or your first graders just need a little counting practice, you can check out this Penguin Counting Freebie. Just click on the pic. 
Have  great weekend. Stay warm!
