More Than a Snowman

File:Olaf the Snowman.pngAs I have mentioned in a previous post, my kindergarten class loves the film Frozen. In order to capture their interest, I have done many activities with them that are centred on the film. A well-loved character of the film is Olaf, the snowman that Elsa and Anna created when they were children. During the past week, the students in my class created their own snowmen using clay.

The above picture shows the results of their efforts. What is not seen, however, is the joy the boys and girls had in rolling the clay and forming the three balls that made up their creation. What is not heard when looking at the photo is the children’s chatter at the table while they were creating their very own Olaf. Each photo that we take has that little bit extra to it – a piece of the memory that has not been captured in the picture.

Do you enjoy building snowmen?

  1. What a wonderful, creative project for the kids, while learning skills.
    I have made snow men from marshmallows, tea biscuit dough, and oh right, from snow!
    Thanks for sharing the kid’s project!

  2. I can imagine the chatter of excited little voices as they constructed their work.
    The smile on their faces would have radiated with joy on their finished masterpieces.
