Creating New Snowflakes from Old
Using paint rollers is a favourite at the art table
(you may of heard me say that before).
It doesn’t matter what we are doing, it draws the children to the table.
This morning we re-purposed items that looked like snowflakes to make snowflake prints.
We used non slip bath tub shapes that looked like a flower.
We painted it two ways, with the suction cups facing up,
We used plastic snowflakes that worked beautifully
and left an impression in the paint on the tray.
We tried pressing paper on it to make a print but it smooshed into a blob.
We used cardboard snowflakes that left a great print too
and was easy to roll the paint onto.
We used bubble wrap and the children painted it two ways,
on top of paper leaving an outline and
then by pressing the paper on top of bubble wrap.
We tried making snowflakes with straws too.
Not too successful though.
This mom decided to cut out her own snowflake and paint it
It was messy artwork but lots of fun.
Proud to show off her art.
