Okay, we’ve done a couple of snow related things before, but we’re studying Colorado, and so I wanted to go back to the snow.
So, after reading the book we headed over to the kitchen to make our snow pictures……
Supplies: blue construction paper, shaving cream, crayons, colored pencils.
1. Color your picture on the blue paper.
2. Inspect the shaving cream on your finger. Try to decide what you will do with this strange thing.
3. Decide that it’s okay, and you really do like it, and start “painting” with your fingers. Superman was not happy that I made him use his fingers. He really wanted a paintbrush. Oh well.
And when they were first done they looked really cool, all puffy and everything.
But two days later they looked like this:
Not so cool. Oh well, it was worth a try. I’ll have to find another cool way to make a snow picture. If all else fails we’ll use paint.
Oh, and here’s what they said they can do in the snow:
Princess: I make holes in the snow. (and she shows me how with her finger).
Batman: I do a snowman and a snowfight and my Daddy helped me and that’s all. (I had to take an extra picture to show you the cute picture he drew).
Superman: I throw snowballs in it and I make snow angels. I do lots of things.
The little guy is Batman and the big guy is Daddy and they’re wearing mittens.
