Winter Crafts & Activities
Now that winter is almost over, here are a few of the crafts and activities we did in the Frog class.
Lick and stick snowman pictures. Sorry, it's sideways.
Doily snowman picture. We hung these on their lockers. Again, sorry it's sideways.
We also made borax crystal snowflakes which I posted about a few weeks ago. The kids also had fun playing with the shaving cream snowman in a bag activity.
The beginning of February was literacy week at our school. We had fun reading The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse by Eric Carle and we painted funny colored animals, too! We also read The Mitten by Jan Brett, and decorated a mitten and made animal puppets to tell the story. Finally, for our assembly we retold the story of Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, and the kids loved making wild things masks. I wish I could post a picture of all of them because they were SO CUTE! Although, I'm slightly biased since they're my class. :)
These are just the few crafts and activities we had time for. I found tons more on Pinterest that I wanted to use, but there isn't enough winter! Maybe I'll use those next year.
What are some of your favorite winter crafts and activities with kids? I love to hear feedback!
