On Monday the children made three snowmen.
Here they are before they were abandoned in favour of a story in our warm & cosy Montessori room.
Inside we had foamy pre-cut snowmen shapes, a box of buttons and glitter, paper & glue. With some black hats the children created these:
The next day we added a few more pompoms, glue, goggly eyes and cotton wool. The children found some sparkly glitter shapes and a few bits and pieces and there you go!
The first snowman was made by a three-year-old boy with a little support from a teacher.
The second one was made by a two-year-old on his own, without teacher support. Never underestimate a two-year-old!
The children started simply with some blue paper and free access to a roll of cotton wool.
Here's a collection of samples on display:
Tomorrow we'll be back to see what happened to the ice in the bowl that we left outside. It's minus 4 degrees Celcius, very cold for England:)
