It has been crazy with introducing centers to my new 3rd graders and reminding my 4th and 5th how they go. This week has been some old favorites and a couple new favorites including this lovely Frosty the Snowman craft.
This craft is easy enough to complete in 15 minutes. I have all of the materials out and ready for them to use.
- Construction Paper
- Coloring supplies
- Snowball stencils (Cutout from construction paper and labeled)
I came up with this center because I realized the sad truth..not many of my students knew all of the lyrics to Frosty the Snowman.
Here’s what was written on their instruction card:
1.) Pick a piece of paper, whichever color you like the best.
2.) Trace your snowman on to the paper using the stencils I left out for you
3.) Cut out a hat and some arms. Draw on your face like I drew on mine. Glue them in the right spots.
4.) You can copy the lyrics to Frosty right off of my example! Write yours in the background like mine.
5.) Finishing decorating your snowman anyway you want.
You will eventually acquire a pile of awesome Frosty the Snowmen:
This new center was a total hit, some groups asked for me to put my iPad in between them so they could listen to the song while working, some even just started to break out into song. I even caught several students passing by me in the hallway singing it together. Copying the lyrics is a great way to memorize them and making artwork like this with it is not only fun but educational!
After everyone is done, you could have a hallway like mine! AAHH! Snowmen Invasion!!
This is a wonderful activity, thank you! I will share with my student teachers at UM!
