We had school today. Many schools around us got a late start, or the day off, but we went to school...on time. In celebration of the snow we had to make snow globes. Another idea floating around on Pinterest (although I think it originated with Mrs. Jump's Class) and I wasn't planning on doing it, because we are working on so many other things, but the snow just couldn't be ignored.
First we went on a shape to find the perfect snow globe circle.
Then we drew a snowy scene with what we would be doing stuck inside the snow globe. We made sure to use LOTS of white.
After we finished our picture, we "painted" a mixture of epsom salt and water onto our snow globe.
When the picture dried, looking like a frozen icicle, we were ready to place it on the snow globe stand.
|The water resists the crayon and the salt sticks to paper, making it look frozen.|
Finally we put all our pieces together and just need to do our writing.
Wearing my pj's inside out, putting a spoon under my pillow and thinking good thoughts for a snow day tomorrow!
