Today we did a a study on snowflakes since it was snowing out!
We read the books The Story of Snow by Mark Cassino
Then, we read the book The Tomten and the Fox by Astrid Lindgren
For the art project you need: a sheet of water color paper
kosher salt, or some kind of course salt
He asked me if I could draw the picture for him, so I did. You will want to draw it in black crayon.
Once it is drawn, have them start painting.
When they get to the background of the picture, they are going to want to make sure, that there is enough water in their paint on the paper.
Before it dries, make sure you sprinkle salt on the water colors. We did this as he was painting instead of waiting until the end.
Let the picture dry.
After it dries, you can dust off the salt. Some of the crystals will be left behind, but it will just add to the snow scene in the background!
