Snowmen - Post #1 of many!

We like to make all kinds of fun snowmen projects!
Here is another snowman project that my students really enjoyed!
The children painted the snowmen using pencil erasers.
I started by giving each child a piece of construction paper. They each traced the outline of their snowman and then painted it by dipping the pencil eraser in white paint.
Construction paper of various colors was used for the scarves, hats, boots and arms.
 First thing: construction paper, pencils and white paint.
Each child drew the outline of his/her snowman first and then started painting it using the pencil eraser and white paint. One child commented that his snowman is made of many snowballs all put together! :)
 Children used construction paper for scarves, boots, hats, and arms.
I really like how they each used different colors and created patterns on the scarves! Also, the arms are so cute: different in length and the number of "branches"!
 My students used black markers for the eyes and some of the buttons, while other students chose to use construction paper for the buttons. Here are some of the projects drying up!
 Check out my newest product focused on ELA/Literacy and Math concepts. These task cards that I created are all CCSS aligned and offer a fun and interactive way to practice and review important academic concepts.
