We love snowmen! (and women)

We have had lots of fun making snowmen. It took a few weeks, but we are finished!

This is what they looked like after we filled our jars with white stuff and glittery stuff. Then we chose heads and Ms. Brown hot glued the heads to the jars. Then we painted the heads with glue and made glittery snow fall on them. When they were dry (the next day) we glued on eyes, noses and mouths. Most students insisted that the noses had to be "carrots" (they were given free reign from our very large collection of collage stuff). The first few students who work on an art project usually set the tone, because the rest of the class has a hard time "thinking outside of the box" once they have seen one finished. Sometimes I try to hide the finished works so the next students can be more creative!

Then we dug into our fabrics and Easter grass to make scarves and hair. Some students even cut crows from tp rolls!

We're going to keep these in the classroom for a few more weeks to admire. I'm not ready to part with them yet :)
