Another idea that is fun is to cut out snowflakes, then arrange them on a
large sheet of white paper. I give each student a blob of blue and white
tempera and have them sponge over the entire thing. Then they remove the
snowflakes and have two finished products. The snowflakes are stiff and the
classroom teachers always want to hang them up, and then for fun I have the
students outline the snowflakes (on the large paper) with glue and sprinkle
with silver glitter. Quicky project that looks great!
