Winter Art

My favorite kind of art is where we use a book for inspiration.  I love children’s books for the illustrations and love coming up with some sort of art to follow up our reading with.

This month we read, Snowmen at Night, and made our own snowmen.  The kiddos really enjoyed making their own and giving them names.  We even had an alien snowman.  I found the idea here.

My boys were super excited about Snowflake Bentley, in part because they read it in years past with their teachers.  We made snowflakes and draped them in the windows.  We are quite loving them.

We stumbled upon A Mountain of Mittens at the library, super fun book. We love our own mountain of mittens.

And just for the heck of it, a couple more delightful books.

Pancakes for Supper, and of course you must eat pancakes for supper.

Can I Bring My Pterodactyl to School, Ms, Johnson?, One of Each, and In the Wild (astonishing illustrations).

Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
