First we painted a cool color background with tempera paint. I encouraged them to create a pattern.
I had two tables set up as the "snow stations"...once they had painting all the white space of their background, they could come add dots of snow with wooden sticks and white tempera paint.
Day Two: Creating Penguins...we did a step-by-step process using construction paper.
Group Project Option: I did a collaborative Antarctica collage with some other classes for our upcoming art show. This was really fun! Minecraft penguins were pretty popular with the boys.
