Snow People in a Globe

Tomorrow is the last school day we will have with the children before the winter break. Instead of letting our sparkly play dough go to waste, we invited the children to sculpt miniature snow people using the play dough and a variety of little art trinkets like beads, sequins, and ribbon scraps.

The children built the small snow people on the inside of a baby food bottle cap. They turned out so well!

Some children used strategies like building their snow person on a stick so the balls of play dough would hold together. What great problem solving!

By building the snow person onto the lid, it made it very easy to turn each child's creation into a unique, miniature winter globe! Don't they look great on our shelf?
