January Pinterest Inspiration


Happy New Year!

I'm kicking off 2016 by  joining the January Pick 3 Top Pinterest Picks, hosted by Inspired Owl's Corner and Pawsitively Teaching.


As per usual, I'm always inspired the most by art projects. We have a least one art lesson a week and both the kids and I love them.

My first pinterest pick, "Shivery Snow Paint", comes from Growing a Jeweled Rose. This shaving cream, glue and glitter mixture will make the most amazing 3D snowmen! I can hardly wait to try it out.

I've seen these melted snowmen for a couple of years now, but I've yet to try them out with my class. I love the painted crayon resist in the background and the blurred oil pastels around the snowballs. This is definitely another "must-do" for me. This idea and photo is from Tiny Art Room.

My final choice is this lovely rendition of "The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats. I really like the way newspaper was used for the buildings and I know my kids will have lots of fun with the sky colours.

  3. I really like your choices of snow projects. I really want to do the snowman from up high this year, too. We are about to launch into snow stuff tomorrow, even if we don't have any on the ground! Thanks for posting. Kathleen

  4. Your blog is simply beautiful! I live in GA where we seldom, if ever, get snow, so I enjoy all things snow in the classroom in January, too! Thanks for linking up with us!

    1. Thanks Ashley! Yeah, we don't get a whole lot of snow either. Even though I live in Canada we're in the "tropical" part, i.e., Victoria:)
