I was going to start our '12 Days of Christmas Art' project today, but our snowy weather was too good an opportunity to miss to do some snow art. I printed the outline of a snowflake and then gave it to Riley to stick bits on - he had pale blue tissue paper, pale blue printer paper, silver foil, cotton wool and squares cut from a white plastic bag.
I was going to cut it out to make a hanging decoration out of it, but he didn't really get that he should stay inside the lines! Never mind - the finished picture is beautiful, and is hanging on our kitchen door instead.
He then went on to do a snowy scene with the bits he hadn't used on his snowflake. It was quite short lived though - he gave up after a couple of minutes.
I did give Freya the same snowflake outline with some crayons while Riley was gluing. She tipped all the crayons out then decided to eat a bread roll!!! I guess she wasn't in a creative mood! However she did get her first ever experience of snow today. I think she was impressed!!!
