Baby its cold outside... winter crafts

Ok, so here in Long Island its not and hasn't been that cold yet... but... winter crafts are always fun :-) Here are a couple of highlights from this weeks classes...

My Preschool class made these cute water/ juice bottle snowmen.... 
we filled them with cotton balls and decorated with buttons and felt. 
I got the idea from here.
 They were very serious filling the bottles with the cotton balls... 
 
 We made pizza... with some garlic, tomato and motz cheese.... always a fan favorite... 
Thank you Pampered Chef for the recipe :-)
  Sprinkling on the cheese...
The finished pizza...
 Frequently I hide alphabet letters around the room... that the children have to go and find... and put in alphabetical order... these are foam letters that are meant for the bathtub... I think I got them from Walmart... or a similar store...
We read My Red Mittens (I really like this for the preschool age... its short, its cute and it has fuzzy mittens)... After reading the kids put their hand-prints on the red mittens that they glued to black construction paper...
 Braeden painting some snow flakes...
  An example of our finished Mittens...
