I am gearing up to do snow banners with my 1st graders.  We are busy assembling needed pieces.  We've cut snowflakes, and made snowman prints.  All of which are safely in envelopes with each student's name on them.  Today, our last piece was snowflake stamping.  I gave each student two long strips of paper, white paint, and cardboard chunks.  I demonstrated how to stamp lines with the wavy side of the cardboard, and criss cross them to make snowflake shapes.  Students were allowed to use the eraser side of pencils to stamp round edges on the flakes.  The only think I asked was that they create some sort of repeated pattern.  I think they turned out great, and can't wait to put these banners together.
