With winter approaching we have been reading books all about this season. I love the classic book “The Snowy Day” by Ezra Jack Keats. It is such a lovely book all about a little boy named Peter and his fun snow day. Peter’s bright red snowsuit stands out in the snow white backdrop throughout the entire book. I thought it would be fun to have the children make a craft to go along with this book and have them make a craft of themselves with a red pointed hat just like Peter wears in the book “The Snowy Day”.
I had the children first paint a card stock circle in a skin tone similar to their own. We have many skin tone paints from Colorations.
This is Peter in his red snowsuit with a pointed hood.
We then added our faces to the red hood cut outs.
We added google eyes.
Our finished craft after adding hair and a smile.
We are all set for a very snowy day!
