A Snowman in the Snow


 Since we were talking about snowy days with our snow sensory bin, I though it would be fun to do a snowman craft. 

Supplies Needed:
Blue construction paper
White construction paper
White paint
Cotton swabs
Markers
Glue sticks

The first thing we needed to do was cut our necessary parts out of the white construction paper. I cut out three circles of varying sizes for each girl. We also tore a strip of white paper to use as the ground.



The girls started gluing. We glued down the torn strip first, then constructed the snowman from the circles.



Next, they took the markers and drew faces, buttons, hats, arms, etc. I had to help AJ draw her face, since she is 2, but Lizzie decorated her snowman herself. 



Finally, it was time for the snow. I poured a bit of the white paint in a container and gave the girls the cotton swabs. They dabbed (or glooped) the paint on the cotton swabs and started making dots on the paper for the snow. They dotted and dotted and smeared just a little until we had a couple of pretty snowy scenes.



It's not the same as a real snowman, but it was still a lot of fun!
