For our stART (story + art) project this week we read the book Snowballs by Lois Ehlert. It's a cute story about making a snowman family using all kinds of fun household items. After reading the book M made her own "snowball."
The illustrations in the book have snowmen made out of crumpled paper, and M selected some natural fiber paper with leaves and flowers pressed into it for a similar look.
We then searched the craft room and house for unusual objects she wished to add. She added hair and feet to her snowball and said it was herself.
She keeps asking me to make the rest of our family, so I forsee many more snowman portraits in our future. You can see many more stART ideas over at A Mommy's Adventures.
