Our snowmen went home this week. Since I had posted the beginning of the project I wanted to let you see the final products.
I had read the story, "All You Need for a Snowman," by Alice Schertle, illustrated by Barbara Lavallee. Then we talked about the different things one could add to make a snowman--arms, eyes, nose, hat, etc.
I had raided the closet and found lots of little items that they could use to finish off their snowmen: pom poms, straw pieces, beads, pipe cleaners, etc. I didn't have actual eyes out, but they asked me if they could use googly eyes so I got some out.
I then gave them some tacky so that the pieces would stick better. We got lots of great creations that I wanted to let you see. One note: When the children used lots of glue, after the glue dried, the Ivory Snow tended to flake off more easily than in other places.
