Kinder snowmen and snowladies!

Kindergarten is finishing up their snow people this week and I love all the personality these have!

Cardinals in 2nd grade

I've done cardinals in many different ways over the years, and this year with a little help from Art for Kids Hub, we've created another version!  We put our cardinals on evergreen branches to make them more of a winter project since we're hoping for some more snow before spring!  Well, at least I am, but my coworkers may not be! :)

For the pine needle "leaves" the students have a few guidelines to follow.  The needles must be as long as their index finger, they should be at least 2 shades of green, and they should be close enough that some of them touch, but not all of them.  This way we end up with fuller branches and no Charlie Brown Christmas trees. Ha!

Harp Seals in 3rd grade!

Before Christmas, I showed my students a short video clip from Art For Kids Hub and they loved it so much I found a few more for winter projects!  These baby harp seals were quick and easy, and for this time of year when we have so many students absent from sickness, it's nice to pull this video back up and let them catch up while I continue working with the rest of the class.  This project was also perfect for practicing a gradient in the background!

I'll post the link to the tutorial at the bottom!

Here's the video!  We love Art for Kids Hub!

Happy Thursday!
