Here is a peek at the Snowman Village project. I love the diversity of their villages. I love providing a palette of choices. In this project the children:
- embellished their houses with markers and watercolor paints
- painted the cardboard “earth” with snow
- created snow “people” out of white foam clay (pipecleaners and markers for details)
- pompoms, sticks and other elements were provided for fun
What I love about creating little villages and habitats is how much it captures the hearts and minds of the children. It is a hushed room while these little universes are being created.
Afterwards, I like to have the children create a little story to go along with the village. These villages hold the potential for many stories. . .
