Advent Day 19 - El Greco Snowman - Cycle 1 Flashback

Advent Day 19 - El Greco Snowman - Cycle 1 Flashback

Another advent activity we worked on was to make a snowman - but not just any snowman - an El Greco snowman!  It is super easy and a great review of a Cycle 1 Great Artists.

Supplies Needed:
  • Colored construction paper in black, orange and two other colors for background and hat/gloves
  • Two different size circumference objects to trace
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • White chalk or crayon or oil pastels

Trace 3 circles on your white paper in at least two different (or 3) sizes.  Then cut them out.
Next you can take the black construction paper and cut buttons, eyes, and a mouth.  Take your other construction paper color and and cut out a scarf and hat with mittens.  Last, cut out a carrot nose with orange construction paper.

Then you cut the snow man in at least two or three places per circle and space them out across the paper like below.  

Then you color between them to give it an elongated look.
Lastly, we added all the embellishments to make him have the snowman look - like below.

This was our final El Greco Snowman!

Have a blessed Day 19 of Advent!
