Giant Snowmen!

We built these giant snowmen!

And we also learned about perspectiveThat is, you can look at something ordinary in a whole new way - even from the view of a worm!

We used a watercolor wash to paint the background, and oil pastels to add the snowman's details.

The best part: we learned how to use washable markers like watercolors! Draw with them, then paint with water over them, and they will "bleed" colors.

We used black markers to draw our snowmen that bled blue, turquoise, and mostly greenWe decided these snowmen are very realistic - they are full of grass, leaves, and pine needles -  just like real snowmen!
