An Avalanche of Snowman Ideas
Brrr! Its cold outside. Well, not really. Here in the deserts of Arizona we like to pretend it's cold outside. One way we get in the winter spirit is to bring some fun "frosty" activities into your classroom.
Who doesn't love snowmen! I grew up in the Midwest and remember spending the day outside building a snowman and then clomp, clomp, clomping back into the kitchen where my mom would pour me a cup of hot chocolate.
Since my students can't build snowmen outside, we do it in our classroom. My favorite is the snowman fence.
Get a free paint stick for every student from your local home store.
Students paint the sticks white.
They can use markers for the eyes, nose and mouth.
Cut off the finger tip from a knit glove (I buy the really cheap ones from Walmart or Walgreens) This will be the knit hat. Top off the hat by gluing a small pom pom at the top.
For the scarf cut strips from any scrap material. Glue a few colorful buttons down the front.
The snowmen are adorable on their own but I taped them to two long board (painted white) and then set them in my window. I love them so much I didn't let the kids take them home until the end of February!
