Welcome to stART! I hope that you will enjoy our story and art project and maybe even share your own too. All I ask is that you link back to A Mommy’s Adventures somewhere in your post by either adding my button or a text link, so that others can see all the other great projects that everyone shares too! The linky will be open all week. Be sure to stop by and visit the different links…every week there are so many different and fun book and craft ideas!
Check out the stART tab in my navigation bar where you can find our past stART projects. All the books that we have read and did a stART project for are listed in alphabetical order.
This week we read The Jacket I Wear in the Snow, by Shirley Neitzel. This is a cute cumulative rhyming story about a little boy who first puts on all of his snow gear and then has to take it off. Emily especially likes the rebus pictures that help her help me tell the story. This books was perfect since we spent the day snowed in after we got another 8 inches of snow over night. Instead of putting on all of our snow gear to go outside where it was way to cold for us, we made some snowmen out of shaving cream and glue.
First I mixed an equal amount of shaving cream and white glue together to form the base of the snowman. This is the same puffy paint mixture that we used for our Puffy Paint Ghosts.
I gave Emily all different supplies to decorate her snowman with. Foam hats and noses, beans, buttons, fabric and wiggly eyes.
Can you tell that she was enjoying this project?!?!
I love the little black beans that she added for the mouth.
Emily’s finished Snowmen. The big one with the blue buttons is Daddy and the little one with the pink and green buttons is Emily.
There was plenty of Puffy Paint left and it looked like so much fun that I made my own Snowmen! First I made the big one which Emily decided was me so then I had to make a little one for Juliette who was actually taking a nap during this project.
