My theme in the library this week was snow. I talked about biographies, including Snowflake Bentley with the 6th graders. So I had to try out a couple of snowflake crafts. Instead of tracing with a marker, I traced with glue and added glitter. I decided my 1st & 2nd graders would enjoy this.
This is not a snowflake craft. This is the first step in a lunar new year lantern. That's our theme for next week. Probably the next 2 weeks, since it's a long holiday.
I'm pretty pleased with how this worked out. It was "hard" for a few of them, but everyone was able to complete their tracing. Good fine motor skills.
I did find glitter on myself the day after we did this, and the library is a little more sparkly than usual, but I'm quite happy with this one project over all.
