Another great holiday project. This works well with teaching small, medium, and large to early grades as they put their own snowmen together using pre-cut circles. Before we began, I had the kids all close their eyes and we pretended like we woke up to a big snowfall (they had to use their imaginations since we live in a warm climate). They shared what they would do in the snow -including making a snowman. Then we sang the snowman song and then discussed the features of snowmen and then I handed out their project supplies. I had them use white oil pastels for the snow because it shows up better on the dark paper.
