Right after Christmas we had a huge snow storm and the girls had so much fun playing out in the snow. We still have a lot of it left so we have also been enjoying all of our snow themed books. Hello, Snow!, by Wendy Cheyette Lewison is one of the books that we enjoyed the most. It has a fun rhyming text with cute illustrations depicting many things that happen when it snows. I think Emily enjoyed it so much because we did many of the things that the book talked about!
For our project Emily made a Snowy Picture Collage
First, we went through some of my magazines and cut out pictures of children in the snow.
Emily glued her pictures on to a piece of blue construction paper. I gave her a scissor so that she could cut any pictures that she wanted smaller.
After the pictures were all glued down, Emily used a toothbrush to splatter white paint all over her collage, to make it look like it was covered in snow. She loved this part and I think the effect was a lot of fun too.

Of course Juliette wants to do everything that Emily does these days so I gave her some pictures to glue onto a piece of paper too.
Then I gave her a q-tip with white paint so that she could dab snow onto her collage. She had fun with this and covered a good amount of the paper, before she decided to see what the paint tasted like and I had to take it all away.
