stART- The Three Snow Bearss

A Story + Art = A great stART!!!

For this week's stART project we read Jan Brett's The Three Snow Bears. It is a cute adaptation of Goldilocks and The Three Bears. We did a collage/sequencing/painting activity for it.

First I had Ryleigh sequence the three bowls, three boots and three beds. Then we glued them on and finished the activity by doing cork prints to represent "snow".... Although MY artwork isn't the greatest (for the bowls, boots and bed) I think the project came out well and Ryleigh had fun retelling the story as we did the collage.

I love how intent she looks all the way through - it looks she really enjoyed the entire process.

We read this one last winter. I like how Jan Brett incorporates Inuit designs into the book.

Very cute project! I will have to check out that book because D loves polar bears.

Great idea to use cork for snow - Ryleigh looks so interested in this project. We haven't read this book - tried other Brett books, but for some reason my daughter cannot warm up to illustrations.

We love this book, and I love what you did to go along with it, especially using the cork.
