Winter is just around the corner, and what better way to prepare for the chilly weather than by creating your own snowflakes
To make these sparkly snowflakes you will need:
-White modeling clay (Crayola Model Magic Clay works well)
-clay modeling tools (spoon, forks, plastic tools, anything that will create great texture)
Start this activity by playing with the clay and imagining what your snowflakes will look like (keeping in mind that no two snowflakes are alike!). Then, begin mixing your glitter into the clay; its important that you keep kneading the clay so that the glitter is spread evenly throughout. Finally, using your tools and your imagination, begin constructing your snowflakes. Once your clay snowflakes are dry, try to come up with some ways to display your snowflakes. Will you hang them on your wall? Or what about turning them into Christmas ornaments? Maybe a snowflake necklace?
Take a look at some of these paintings by British artists. How do you think the snow inspired them? Can you create your own drawing/painting inspired by the snow?
