Last year we did a S for Snow, snowman unit and it was a HUG hit. That time, after reading Snowman by Richard Briggs we did this Snow Painting which Aarya loved too (which we did again for Valentine’s day as well!), so I decided we would do it again.
This time I cut out green trees before hand and glued them to a black construction paper and let him hit it with a snow storm (lol)
This was so much FUN! I wanted to do it too.
2) Toothbrush Painting. We continued with the same background but this time used a toothbrush to “spray” snow. This turned out more realistic and aarya realized it was not easy for him to do it. It took some tries to get it right but then he mastered it, we had snow all over the place. 🙂
3. While packing food for Aarya’s father’s lunch, I after a long time used foil to wrap his rotis (I usually give him rice), Aarya wanted to play with the foil right then. As I was busy, I told him he had to wait. So after we were done painting, I gave him the foil to explore, and as expected he crunched it all up. Afterwards he dipped it into paint and well we had “snow mountains”. Really he started with dabbing the paint with the foil, then he just spread it all up – at one point I was sure the paper would tear up – but it did hold up and Aarya Snow mountains looked really lovely. He even pointed out Snowman, which I could not see; but it was there 🙂
The painting all hung up,
