As part of our celebration of winter we made some snowmen. We started by painting the bodies, and the snow covered ground. The next day we added paper eyes and buttons, I have used real buttons in the past. Then cut out scarves and hats using fabric sample books. Some children chose to add orange carrot noses, one student a cup of coffee, some added glasses and headphones, it was up to each student to create their snowman's personality. They love saying, "we can do whatever we want because it is Art!" I celebrate this sense of personal power over their creation.
I hope you enjoy these snow characters and get a sense of the fun we had making them.
