We have been enjoying the book All You Need For a Snowman by Alice Schertle.We made this cute Doily Snowman to go along with the story.
Both boys really liked the story All You Need For a Snowman. It is about all the steps and things you would use to make a very large snowman. There is some predictable text and lots of spots where kids can predict the next step in building a snowman. The illustrations are beautiful.
Now on to the craft! We started by drawing snow flakes on a large sheet of construction paper with a white crayon.
Then the boys lined up and glued on a small, medium and large doily to make the snowman's body. I didn't have any small doilies so I cut some of the lacy part off the medium doily to make it smaller.
We used glue sticks to glue down the doilies.
Then time to decorate. I put out some fabric, buttons, Popsicle sticks, scissors and scrap paper.
We talked about what we would need for a snowman. L asked me to draw a hat and boots that he could cut out.
We used Popsicle sticks for the arms and a strip of fabric for the scarf.
