The Snowy Day….

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.
