Snowmen At Night

Over a year ago I began following an art teacher's blog called "Deep Space Sparkle". I absolutely love her projects and it's been a great inspiration for me to do several projects with Josiah and Nathan throughout the school year. In the past we have also had Jojo's friends join in on the fun. Last semester though was absolutely crazy and every week I planned to do an art project something would come up or Jojo's friends would get sick. One of my New Year's resolutions was to re-start the art projects so yesterday we finally got to work on one.

Since it's Winter time and we're living in a wonderful Winter wonderland I thought we'd try out this "Snowmen at Night" project over at Deep Space Sparkle. I don't have the book though and it would have been nice to read the book and then work on the project but oh well!

As we were working on our project it was snowing.

Mod Podging some tissue on to look like buildings.

Nathan's snowman in the night.

Jojo's snowman. Jojo had the idea of painting arms and so
everyone else then added arms. Notice the snowman's left
eye has red on it...........Jojo said it was a bloody eye. At
one point Josiah was going to start painting something in 
black on the snowman's hand but I stopped him. I asked 
him what he was going to do and he said he was going to
paint a gun for the snowman to hold.  BOYS!!!!

Everyone's creation. I think they all turned out great!!!
