Snowman Craft and a Freebie!

Hi Everyone!
   I am enjoying a rare San Diego rainy day! I get to sit home and in my cozy yoga pant with a Starbucks, and not have to worry about indoor recess, the hyperactivity from the rain crazies, or the having to go to the bathroom every 5 seconds because you see the rain outside (that one's my problem : )
   Last week we worked on a super fun snowman craft that I'm sure you have seen all over pinterest.  I pinned the idea from HERE.
I love how they turned out!  Being the obsessive person that I am, I have a problem not utilizing a template for an art project.  I created this quick template for the body, nose, and scarf for my kids to use.
After they cut each piece out and glued them to a sheet of black construction paper, the students chose whatever color they thought would word best with for the stripes on the scarf. 
After all the pieces were glued, I gave each table a paper plate with both white and black paint, and each student a Q-tip.  They added in smiles, buttons, and the snow, using the Q-tips.
I added in the words "It's SNOW secret....We love Jesus! and voila, January bulletin board done (even tho it never snows in San Diego : ) The kids had a blast doing this one, and it was one of my least messy paint projects I've ever done!

Have a great week!
