This week is art!
Today we started with Ice Cream Bear by Jez Alborough.
I had never read this book before, so it was new to me and the kids! When Bear falls asleep, he has a sweet dream about ice cream falling from the sky. The kids liked this one a lot, especially the part where Bear starts to build a giant snowball made of sugary ice cream!
Our second book was Please, Mr. Panda by Steve Anthony.
Mr. Panda has made a batch of delicious donuts with frosting and sprinkles and all kinds of sugary sweetness. But he won’t share with his friends unless they ask them politely!
After our books, we went to our stations:
- Christmas tree cones!
The kids LOVED these! And they were easy to make. It’s an upside down ice cream cone covered with green frosting, candy ornaments, and whip cream snow. Coconut flakes can be added for snowflakes.
- Styrofoam ice cream cones.
We covered styrofoam balls in tissue paper and pom poms, then glued them to a cone made of construction paper. You can see one of the finished cones in the photo below!
- Dot marker ice cream cones.
The kids cut out ice cream cone shapes from brown construction paper, then used dot markers to make scoops of ice cream.
- Ice cream coloring sheets.
Next week is play!
