Ice Cube Painting and Salt Paint Snowmen
This week I added white glitter to our peppermint play dough. It had such a nice shimmer to it, I loved playing with it!!
I saw the idea for these ice cube paintings on No Time For Flash Cards and new I had to try it with our Art Group. All of the girls had so much fun working with this cold twist to painting!!!
I love these messy art hands!!!
I read the girls Snowballs, by Lois Ehlert. It is a cute book about a snow family. The pictures show all the different and creative things that you could use to create a snowman. After reading the book we were all ready to make some of our own!
I made these with Emily one day last year and we had so much fun. Her blob looked like a melted snowman mess, but she was so proud of it. I thought it would be the perfect winter project to try again with our Art Group.
The girls had white paint with salt and glue to paint their snowman with. I just gave them a piece of blue construction paper and let them make whatever shape they wanted.
Next, I put out beans, beads, corn kernels, pom poms, wiggly eyes, fabric, construction paper hats and stickers and let them add anything they wanted to their snowmen.
All of the girls were so proud of their work and it was so much fun to watch and listen to them as they were making them!
Juliette and Braeden had fun playing together when Art Group was over!
