Kindergarten: Shaving Cream Snowmen

Snowmen in a Winter Wonderland 

Shaving Cream Snow 

Kindergarten Art 

First, we painted with a shaving cream/glue mixture to create a snowman in a wintry scene. 

The students loved painting with shaving cream! 

 Next, we added pine trees by printing with a piece of cardboard. 

Finally, details were added to the snowman and we used a Q-tip to create snow.

1st Grade: Cardinals

Cardinals in Winter 
1st Grade 

First, the students drew a cardinal and painted it red.

Next, they added details with a black marker and cut out the cardinal. 

 Then, they created an environment for the cardinal by painting a branch and pine needles. 

The students enjoyed stamping the pine needles with a piece of cardboard. 

Finally, they added snow to create a winter scene. They loved using a Q-tip to create the snowflakes.

I'm very proud of the students' work!
