Lois Ehlert Inspired Snowmen

Saturday, January 26, 2013

This week we read a book by Lois Ehlert called Snowballs.  She used a beautiful collage method to create her illustrations.
The kids thought it would be fun to create snowmen out of materials that we could find around our homes and our classroom just like she did!  Here are some of the things that we collected!
The kids sat down and created plans to show what parts they needed when they created their own snow people.  They drew a picture of how they wanted it to look, then labeled the parts.

Next, we mixed equal parts glue and shaving cream and the kids went to work!
Here are the snow people that they created!  I think that they are amazing!!!  The kids had a lot of fun with this project!
