Winter is here! Well in just about every state except here in Sunny Southern California! So I thought I’d bring a little touch of snow to my classroom when we return!. My daughter made this darling snow globe as a holiday card at her after school program. I think it is so cute so I’m going to make them when we return. I’m going to make a few changes:

1. A thumb print sun

2. The poem “5 Little Snowmen Fat” on the back!

3. Then my kiddos can write “Let it snow” or “We love snow” on the front instead of Happy Holidays. Slide4

Slide5

Five little snowman pattern link ! Cut a blue circle the same size as the white poem. Children use their handprint to make snowmen, and after they are dry they decorate with colored markers. For fun put white glitter on for the snow balls. I plan on using their thumbprint  in yellow for sunshine! I’ll post pictures when they are done.
