Our first fun winter craft was one of my favorites--the Ivory Snow Snowman. My favorite reason to make this? They smell soooo good. The children also find the texture after the snowman dries different and fun.
After our snowmen dried, the got all "dressed up" to go home--and boy did some of them get dressed.
This week we were discussing our wildlife--the winter birds and hibernating animals. First on Tuesday we made Cheerio bird feeders to put outside for our fine feathered friends. (I don't have pictures--Tuesday was a whirlwind.)
Today we made a bear and cave for him to hibernate in. For the cave I had the children watercolor the back of a paper plate brown, black, or mixed. This will be the cave.
Then I gave them a bear I cut out of construction paper. The children covered the bear with glue, we laid him in some yarn, then added a stick to the back so he can go in and out of his cave.
To make the actual cave I folded the paper plate in half and put two staples on each side near the fold. I then put a slit in the fold and slipped in the stick the bear was on. Then the bear cold go in and out of his "cave."
I had to share this snack we had on Thursday. I know I may be late to the party, so sorry if you already saw these. They were Trix treats in a cone. It looks like you make the Trix treats like you would Rice Krispie treats, then put them on a cone. They looked really cute.
Our shape books are coming together. We did the triangle and rectangle. The first two days we cut the shapes out and glued them on their paper with their song. The second day we made a kite out of triangles for the rectangle and a top hat with rectangles.
I think I have you all caught up with the 3's--until next week.
