Polar Express

This has turned out to be a great 1-day lesson for my first graders this crazy week before Christmas break! They're all watching "Polar Express" anyway, so I thought I'd dangle the splatter box in front of their noses like a little carrot. It's working!!!

We used white oil pastel to draw the train, and colored oil pastels to color the train, trees, and snow in.
If they behaved, they got to use the splatter box to make their snow!!!
These are so much fun and make for nice wintery scenes (even if you don't like to "do" holiday projects with your kids!)

  1. I agree, there is nothing more enticing to little ones than splattering paint!! These are charming:))
