Hi all! Happy Friday! I hope you are having a great New Year! Here is a fun paintin’ and countin’ project. (This is supposed to make you think of sippin’ and paintin’. Ha!)
Months ago I pinned a cute idea using a set of pine needles to create snowflake stamps. It’s from Family Fun magazine I believe, but the link is no longer working. I’m sure you can find it on their page with a little digging. Anyways I couldn’t just leave it as a cute art project but wanted to extend it to include learning.
Right now we’re reviewing numbers 1-5 with my Preschool class before we move on to harder numbers. I decided to incorporate the cute idea above with some Math. I created a simple printable for students to put the correct amount of snowflake stamps in each section. Unfortunately after attempting the above craft I had a hard time finding a tree that had the needles going in a circle. Our sample stamps turned out terrible. Maybe you can find some in your neck of the woods, so we used these fluffy pom pom balls. They turned out a little more like snowballs than snowflakes, but they were fun none the less.
You can get a PDF of the SNOWFLAKE PRINTABLE by clicking on the link. The kids really enjoyed this and it added a winter-scape to our walls, all while using our Math skills!
