Snowmen Families

I really enjoyed this simple art project.     The original idea comes from Gail Bartel.
You may know her as 'That Artist Woman'.  Hop on over and check out her fabulous blog and her step-by-step instructions on how to make these cute families.
I used some grey card stock that I had lying around.  I like the contrast between the virbrant blue and stark white.
 After they stamped the families above they decorated their families.  I used a hole punch to punch out the little circles for buttons and eyes, but the rest was all done by them. 

Oh yeah, the letters were done with a die cutting machine.  Next time I do this activitiy I will use a die with smaller letters.  I didn't realize just how big some of the long names in my class would be.

I made sure that they only stamped family members that they live with.
This little girl is the youngest of 8 sisters.

Many of my students live with their grandparents too.
Don't forget to hop on over to Gail's blog for instructions.


  1. Hey Sandra,
    These pictures are so cool!! I'm currently a trainee teacher at the moment and I believe in a creative approach to teaching. I am trying to gain as many strategies as I can to call upon when I graduate next year. Your blog has definitely inspired me to fulfil my ambitions.

    I can't wait to see more posts.
