"Emotional" Snowmen

We had a great time making "emotional" snowmen this afternoon.This was a quick, easy and meaningful craft! My kind of craft! I found this idea at Living Life Intentionally. If you have not checked out this site, be sure to do so! Beth shares awesome ideas!!

So here is how we made our "emotional" snowmen. We used paper plates, orange and black construction paper, and bingo markers. I cut out the noses and mouths for the boys. We used our bingo markers for eyes. Then they glued on the pieces and we discussed each emotion. I decided to focus on four emotions: happy, sad, angry, and surprised.



My silly snowmen!

We posted them on the wall as a visual reminder and tomorrow we will discuss them more.

CA took this picture himself. Not too bad!
Thanks, Beth for the awesome craft!
