Sometimes I set up a craft activity for the children that lasts 10 minutes, other times it really captures their interest and lasts an hour. Today was one such time! We set out to make a snowman each but by the end of our session the children had produced a whole snow family!
We discussed the parts of the body – head, body, eyes. We explored circles, we counted how many buttons we had, how many eyes we needed. We chatted throughout and had a lovely time, I was so pleased with how the snowmen turned out and the children loved them!
I stepped back to allow them to complete their snowmen how they liked and so as not to interrupt their thought process, this resulted in some wonderfully fun designs.
