North Pole collage, North Pole and South Pole theme
Kids like it to make a collage. They are busy with it for several days and use several different techniques. This is also the case with this North Pole collage. First, the kids cut and pasted snowflakes with painters tape. After this they painted the snow and the sky. The could make polar light in the sky. The kids can remove the painters tape to see the snowflakes when the paint is dry. The kids can color and cut out an Eskimo after this. They glued a bit of sheep’s wool around the hat. The next day, they make an igloo with a paper plate and some black paper. They draw ice blocks with a black marker. This is an amazing writing pattern to train the fine motor skills.
