A truly artistic and delightful book. The text is poetic and the illustrations are simple and beautiful. This book is meant to be read aloud with feeling, the words flow in perfect rhythm. Each page includes a bit of a tease as it states 'All you need for a snowman is...' one single piece at a time (starting with one snowflake)... just enough of a tease to be fun.
These keepsake ornaments are SUPER easy and I think each one we made turned out great
(I picked up glass ornaments and some white craft paint before hand and had damp rags at the ready.) I painted each child's hand- and I wasn't very consistent, some were drippy/some were a bit dry- regardless- they all turned out great.
After painting I had the child spread her hand out flat, I placed the ball in child's hand and told her to squeeze tight for five seconds.
I had the child slowly open her hand. I gently took the ball and placed it upside down on a cardboard tube to dry. I then repeated steps 1-3 with each child.
A few hours later with a two sharpie markers (one black - one orange) the snowmen came to life...
Here's the lot of them- ADORABLE, right?
Now I just have to feature a few individually so you can really take in all the holiday wonder and delight (the kiddos were amazed at the transformation from hand print to snowman party).
