stART Project - All You Need for a Snowman



We've been having a fun time reading the book All You Need for a Snowman by Alice Schertle.
Since we've been having snowy days here I thought this would be a perfect book for our stART project. To be honest, I'm kinda tired of the snow, so instead of going outside to play in the snow, we made an indoor snowman.
I drew three circles for our snowman on blue construction paper and Bekah painted them white.

I hadn't planned on it, but Bekah insisted on cutting out her snowman. In the process she decapitated him (whoops!), but this was quickly resolved with some scotch tape!

Once the paint dried, Bekah glued on some buttons and sequins for his eyes, nose, mouth, and buttons.

Here's her finished snowman:

I would definitely recommend this book...it's such a fun story and my daughter has loved reading it!

I think we may bring some snow inside to play with in a little while....

You can see what others have made for their stART project at A Mommy's Adventures.

  5. I love it! We've got plenty of snow too, but I'm over going out to play in it.

  6. At some point I should let my kids use my buttons for a permanent craft. I'm so mean, I don't let them use the buttons.
    Her snowman turned out super cute.
