January Quilt

Mittens are a great winter hand print project. Prepare a class supply of construction paper. Allow the students to chose the color of their mittens. Apply desired color of tempera paint onto the student's hands with a sponge or paint brush. Press the student's hands on to the paper moving them slightly from side to side so that the fingers blur. Add 3 dots to the bottom of each hand print to create the wrist of the mitten. Program the paper with the month desired after the paint has dried.
This year I received a donation of a bag of floss picks. We used them as ice-skates for our tube snowmen.

Projects that allow students to pick out bits and pieces and create unique expressions of their individuality.

This is out display of winter crafts.
