Snowmen and penguins – handprint projects

Snowmen and penguins – handprint projects

For these two projects, I painted each child’s hand using white paint. We let them dry overnight.
The following day, children used markers to decorate each finger as a penguin (for one project) and as a snowman (for another project). They turned out so cute!
My kids also used cotton balls for snow!
Yes, I call them “my kids” because I love them dearly BUT I know that they are just my classroom kids for the year!
To add a literacy component, kids wrote about winter and snowmen liking the cold. They also wrote about winter being fun!
We reviewed proper conventions of writing, starting with a capital letter, using finger spaces, ending with an end mark, etc.
