We used corks and paint to make snowballs. Then they squeezed some glue around the snowballs and added some pretend sparkly snow. Using the corks force the use of a modified pincer grasp, which is a step in developing a mature pencil grasp. They all used the same technique but their paintings all turned out so differently. This wintery art project turned out so pretty!
We have been learning all about snowflakes so we made a snowflake with bleeding tissue paper. We directed the children to draw lines to form a snowflake. We traced the pencil marks with sharpies and then added bleeding tissue paper. They used a spray bottle to spray the tissue paper and watched the colors blend!
We made snowmen names that decorated our classroom all week! We also played a counting game. They took turns rolling a dice. Counted the number of dots and then used bingo markers to put the same number of dots on their snowmen.
