nothing like a tornado strike to honor kansas day.
the preschoolers having been showing consistent interest in cutting. more specifically, cutting yarn. more specifically yet, cutting the yarn from our weaving project.
so since it was winter white week, we had white yarn in the tub table and tied some of it to an embrodiery hoop hanging from the ceiling (where the magnet used to be).
we decided it looked like we were cutting a beard, so we added a face.
this was a group project based on opening the craft cupboards to find any white things. again, thank you thrift shop! i painted a white snowman outline , then set out the white things and glue.
at the end of the day i poured about 2 bottles of glue over the whole thing (kind of like shellac).
meet our recycled snowman…taller than every preschooler!
more thrifted wooden pieces.
first was painting them with glue (it looked like icing!) with any brush you choose.
then rolling them in tiny snips of white paper.
then letting them dry.
then having to get them off the paper that they dried on.
if hitting doesn’t work, then use a paintbrush to get it off (harder than it seems…and funnier).
then some pipe cleaner nose bending, pipe cleaner eye choosing, green scarf cutting
and some teacher hot gluing.
the conversations were fun to hear. a favorite comment heard, “i bet i could keep this in my room with the door locked and it wouldn’t melt!”
