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. . .
