Kindergarten Tissue Paper Snowmen

This project was an idea I borrowed from another blog and it turned out so much better than I expected! The students had a great time with it and were able to practice fine motor skills. We began by having a discussion about cool colors. Next, we pasted down squares of tissue paper. After a little practice and a few reminders, the students had the process down to an art! The next class, after the tissue paper and glue had dried, we began painting our snowman. We talked about the shapes that we used for each part of the snowman's body. Last, my favorite part! We took Q-tips and added snowflakes for the final touch! What a talented group of kindergartners I have!
