WHEN LIFE HANDS YOU SNOW...

BUILD A SNOWMAN!
This snowman was made by a class of Prek kids... a great cooperative project and fantastic motor planning and fine motor activity and they get to practice tracing and cutting...



We begin by tracing a circle, then cutting it out, folding in quarters and snipping V shapes on the folds. Leave a finger width  between cuts...clear tape fixes any mistake.

Every snow flake, no matter how simple gets added with transparent tape. Adults can cut their own so the kids have an example and something to aspire to. Kids will be willing to try several times if they are sure their flake won't be rejected.
When warm weather finally arrives, the snowman "melts" overnight and is replaced by a "puddle" of  light blue tissue paper at the bottom of the door...
