Picture-stories of favorite winter days are sure to capture kids' imaginations and happy memories. Encourage children to develop their art and language literacy skills with a Winter Surprise.
Think of your favorite day in the snow. What did you do? How did you feel? Draw a picture of the expression on your face with Crayola® Metallic FX Crayons on construction paper.
Cover your work area with recycled newspaper. Paint over your drawing with Crayola Washable Watercolors and Brushes.
After it dries, cut out your portrait with Crayola Scissors. Glue it to another piece of construction paper with a Crayola Glue Stick.
What were you wearing that day? Draw your clothing, paint it with watercolors if you like, cut out the dry pieces, and glue them on your portrait.
Add clues about your story by including background details in your drawing. Was it snowing? Were you with friends?
On the back of your drawing, write a story or poem about your favorite day.
Our crayons have been rolling off the assembly line since 1903, and you can see how it’s done.
