Dream Snow Snowman Paintings





In Art class, first graders read the book, Dream Snow by Eric Carle. Students created art like Carle by painting snow over their snowmen on a transparency like Carle did in his book. Students learned how Carle creates his art and also learned the difference between authors and illustrators.
I do this lesson every year and it always turns out so cute!

  5. These are great! I plan on trying them very soon with my Kindergartners! Is there a secret trick to getting the kids to draw the circles nice and large so that the snowmen don't end up too small?
