Our stART project for today was inspired by the book The Missing Mitten Mystery by Steven Kellogg. This is a book about a little girl that spends the day playing outside, only to realize she's lost yet another mitten. Determined to find it, she and her dog set out to solve the mystery...and find it is the snowman's heart.
The snowmen's arms aren't glued down so you can fold them in to hide the mitten.
I mixed some homemade water colors in a few shades of winter sky blue. You can find the recipe here. (I have found that while I still love this recipe, the paint can get gritty. Does anyone know how to correct that or have another recipe I could try?)
After their skies dried, they glued shapes on to make the snowman. Sassyfras puts just enough glue that a light wind wouldn knock her picture apart and Juiciness puts enough to take until the next day to dry!
The final part was to use black marker to make the snowman's face. Sassyfras wanted help, but Juiciness was happy to do at least the eyes by himself.
