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 Snip, Snip...Snow!, by Nancy Poydar. When I saw it in the library I knew it would be perfect, especially since the ground here is still covered in snow!! It is a cute story about a little girl that is anxiously awaiting the first snowfall of winter. She is very disappointed when the forecast calls for snow, but when she wakes up there was nothing! (I could totally relate to this when I was little!!) At school her she makes a ton of paper snowflakes and to her surprise it starts to snow. This story was fun to read and the perfect story to go with making your own paper snowflakes!
Emily, Juliette and I had fun making colored coffee filter snowflakes and then dancing around with them! Although this is not very original, it was so much fun :0)
Emily and Juliette colored on their coffee filters with markers.
Next, we used a spray bottle to wet the coffee filters and make the colors run.
Then we let them dry.
While we were waiting we made some plain white snowflakes.
Emily folded the coffee filter in half and then in half 2 more times to make a triangle shape.
Although she has no problem using a pair of scissors on plain paper, she had a hard time cutting the small pieces out. So when the colored filters dried she asked me to make them.
